LaFAYETTE — Chambers Academy has hired Jon Owens as its new assistant headmaster, according to a news release from the school.

Owens is a LaFayette native and graduated from Chambers Academy in 1988. He recently retired from Alabama’s public education system where he served as assistant principal at Stephens Elementary in the Alexander City School System.

Owens earned a degree in social studies education at Auburn University in 1993 and a masters degree in educational leadership at Auburn University at Montgomery in 2008.

He also had two tenures as assistant principal at Wadley High School in Randolph County and Stephens Elementary. He also had teaching stints at Benjamin Russell High School in Alexander City and Alexander City Middle School.

During his time at Alex City, he also worked with both the football and baseball varsity teams. His tenure with Chambers Academy will also include taking over as head girls varsity softball coach, succeeding former coach Brandi Fuller.

Chambers Academy Headmaster David Owen said he is excited to have Owens join the administrative team, noting that has an extensive background with using technology in the classroom.

“Mr. Jon Owens will be a big asset to CA with our continued enrollment growth projected to reach a twenty year high for the 2019-20 school year,” Owen said in a news release.

Owens is married to Alice (Mahan) Owens and their family currently resides in Alexander City. 

They have three children, Luke (18), Audrey (15) and Jake (14) that all currently attend Benjamin Russell High School.
