Former principal of Springdale Elementary, Shane Thackston, passes away
The news of Thackson’s death was delivered Wednesday morning to Thackston’s colleagues in Lexington School District Two. He was a popular and beloved member of the school district’s community.
Thankston took a short leave from Springdale after suffering severe pain in his head in January 2015. He was back at school, in his principal’s role by February of that year. In the time he was out, Thackston was treated for vascular mass complications.
He reported “feeling fine” when he came back. But in the next two years, his health declined until his death.
