Ms. Lori Owens, Principal

I am writing with news to share with you – the families and community of Harding Elementary…

Last week I accepted a position as Executive Director of Elementary Academics.   As you can imagine, it has been a very emotional process for me in making this decision. But in the end, I feel that this is the right decision in my professional career.

I want to thank each and every one of you for all your support, and for entrusting me with your children for the past 3 ½  years. I am honored and feel so fortunate to have been given the opportunity to be part of the Harding’s Community.  I have so many wonderful memories of my time at Harding and I am sad to say goodbye.  During my years here, I have fostered relationships with many of you and I will cherish the memories and friendships I’ve made during my time.  Harding has been a very special place for me and I will miss everyone.


Although it’s hard to say goodbye to the parents and adults, the hardest part of leaving is saying goodbye to the children. I have grown so attached to them over the years. I have loved watching them grow up into amazing young people. Please give them a hug for me and let them know how they touched my heart and life. I treasure my memories of them all.

Please accept my sincere thanks and appreciation as I enter into a new learning experience of my own.


Mrs. Owens

Mr. Ray Liskey, Assistant to the Principal
