PADUCAH — Paducah Tilghman High School athletic director and assistant principal, Kris Durfee, will be moving to Paducah Middle School to serve as assistant principal and its first full time athletic director. Durfee will begin his work at Paducah Middle July 1.

Superintendent Donald Shively said the goal of moving Durfee from PTHS to PMS is to use his experience at Paducah Tilghman to build a similar leadership structure and approach to athletics and extracurriculars that has been implemented with good results at Paducah Tilghman.

Shively said that while a new position is being added at the middle school, personnel costs will remain the same due to savings in other areas.
