New Principal at Bartram Trail HS
Brennan W. Asplen, Principal of Millennium Middle School in Seminole County, has been selected by Superintendent Joseph Joyner to be the new Principal of Bartram Trail High School (BTHS). His nomination will be presented to the School Board at the June 13 meeting, and he is expected to assume his new position on July 1.

Mr. Asplen succeeds Tim Forson, who has been named the new Executive Director for Facilities and Operations. He has served as Principal of BTHS for the past four years.

The nominee has almost 18 years of experience in education and has served as a teacher, coach and administrator. He started his career in 1988 as a middle school math teacher and six years later was promoted to Dean of Students at Lake Brantley High School in Altamonte Springs.

In 1995 Mr. Asplen was transferred to Jackson Heights Middle School as Assistant Principal and then spent the next five years as Assistant Principal at two different high schools. In 2001 he was named Principal of his former middle school and three years later transferred to Millennium Middle School (MMS) in Sanford to serve as Principal.

MMS is a diverse, 2,100-student middle school and a Fine Arts, Communication and Pre-International Baccalaureate Magnet. During Mr. Asplen's tenure the school received both the Golden School Award for parent volunteer programs and the Five Star School Award for community involvement. He also formed a partnership with the Florida Citrus Sports Foundation and was elected by his peers to serve as President of the Seminole Association of School Administrators.

"Mr. Asplen is a great match for Bartram Trail," said Superintendent Joseph Joyner. "He possesses all of the leadership skills and attributes to continue the excellence already existing, and I am confident he will lead the school to the next level of greatness."

Mr. Asplen holds a bachelor's degree in Mathematics from the University of Central Florida and a master's degree in Educational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University.
