Principal's Bio

Tony Garrette, Principal

I grew up in Centerville, TN and graduated from Hickman County High School in 1984. I received a baseball scholarship to Martin College and played two years there, earning my Associate in Arts Degree. I was then recruited to Union University to play baseball and earned by Bachelor of Science degree in 1988.


I have been an educator for twenty-eight years. I began my teaching career in 1989 and have served students in Hickman, Marshall, and Bedford Counties. I taught for eleven years at Community High School, where I taught History and Government, as well as serving stints as Girls Basketball coach, Cross Country coach, and Athletic Director, before moving to Community Middle School to become principal.


I am married to Carol Garrette, and we have three children, Keri Beth (24), Jake (19), and Grayson (15). I am proud to be the principal at Community Middle School and I look forward to being here for many years to come.
