Mrs. Veronica Bayles


It is an honor and privilege to begin my fourth year as principal of G. W. Trenholm Primary School.  This marks my twenty second year as an educator. Before coming to GWT, I spent 14 years in the Lawrence County School System where I was a teacher, Instructional Coach, Instructional Partner, and Assistant Principal. I recently completed the NAESP PreK-3 Leadership Academy and the AASA National Superintendent's Academy- Blended Cohort. My husband Scott and I have been married for thirty years and have two daughters, Lauren and Whitney and four beautiful grandboys. 

I believe that communication and relationships serve as the foundation for success.  I look forward to working with our students, parents, faculty, staff, and community to make this year one filled with achievement and success.  Go Tigers!!
