Associate Principals

Please welcome our two new K-12 associate principals to Lockland Schools!

Lena M. Patton is an experienced building-level and central office administrator. She began her teaching career in Milwaukee Public Schools, where she also served as a K-12 Assistant Principal, Principal, and Director of STEM. For the past four years, she has served as an Educational Consultant with the Hamilton County Educational Service Center and State Support Team #13. Lena is excited to join the team, and she will be a great fit for Lockland as we continue to focus on continuous improvement in our classrooms and schools.

Jon Payne has nearly 30 years of experience in public education as a teacher and administrator in Ohio. Jon is coming to Lockland from Reading Schools, where he has most recently served as the 7-12 Assistant Principal and Athletic Director for several years. Jon will be a great addition to our staff as he works with our team to reach our goals.

“We are incredibly fortunate to have the experienced leadership of Lena, Jon, and our Principal Karen Clemons. I know this team will work well with our staff to best meet the needs of our students and families,” said Superintendent Bob Longworth.
