The Griffin-Spalding County Board of Education on Tuesday night approved the appointment of Dr. Buford Tyrone Kellogg as principal of Griffin High School.

Kellogg’s appointment was approved during a virtual special called Board of Education meeting.

Kellogg has most recently served as principal of Putnam County High School for two years.

Prior to the Putnam County School System, he spent three years in the Dublin City School System where he held positions as an elementary assistant principal and high school principal, and four years in the Turner County School System where he served as an assistant high school principal.

Kellogg also served from 2007 to 2010 as the head basketball coach, athletic director and assistant principal at Randolph Clay High School.

He received a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Paine College, a master’s degree from Jacksonville State University and specialist degree and doctorate in Educational Leadership from Argosy University.

“I am very excited to have Dr. Kellogg come serve with the students and staff at Griffin High School,” said GSCSS Superintendent James D. Smith. “He impressed me as a man of integrity and caring, two traits highly desired in a school leader. All of us are looking forward to welcoming Dr. Kellogg to Griffin and continuing planning for the coming school year.”

Kellogg’s appointment will become effective July 6.
