Lucy Keaton, Principal

Ms. Keaton has had the privilege of being a principal at various schools within the Clark County School District.  Halle Hewetson was known as one of the lowest performing schools in the district; however, under Ms. Keaton’s guidance, Hewetson skyrocketed in achievement and was recognized as the Title 1 “Five Star” School of the Year in 2012.

Ms. Keaton received the National Distinguished Principal Award on October 12, 2010 and she was inducted into the Nevada Education Hall of Fame on May 16, 2011.  Ms. Keaton also lead the Clark County School District’s English Language Learner Program during the 2013-2014 school year while serving as an Assistant Superintendent and was responsible for ensuring that 63,000 students received instructional support in Clark County schools. 

On a personal note, Ms. Keaton has three amazing adult daughters and five grandchildren she loves to spend time with; family is extremely important to her and she is dedicated to creating a sense of community and partnership between educators, students and parents.  She is proud to be a part of the Pinecrest Academy of Nevada ‘family’ with St. Rose Panther Pride!
