Lindsay Busby has worked in education for 17 years. After graduating from the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!) with a bachelor’s degree in biology, she was hired to teach science at Pike County High school. There she taught a variety of courses to students grades 8-12. Over this time, she earned her master’s and doctorate degrees in education. In 2010, she was hired as an Assistant Principal at Pike County High School, where she stayed for 6 years. In 2016, she moved to Pike County Middle School as an Assistant Principal for 2 years, before spending 3 years at Pike Ninth Grade Academy (NGA) as an Assistant Principal. She became Principal of NGA in Fall 2021.
A graduate of Pike County High school (Go Pirates!), Lindsay has only been uninvolved with the Pike School system for 9 years of her entire life—4, when she was learning to feed herself and speak, as a young child, and 5 as she was in Decatur, GA and Athens, earning a college degree.
Lindsay is married, with 3 really fantastic kids. She enjoys reading, traveling to cool places, and sneaking in a good late 90’s alt rock band concert. She thinks she can grow plants, but the plants would not exactly call it “thriving,” if they survive at all.
Lindsay believes that she is so fortunate to be able to do what she thinks is the most important thing anyone can do—help young people discover and develop their own natural gifts and talents. Developing one’s potential is not only life changing for the kiddo, it is awfully fun to see unfold.
Please welcome our new Assistant Principal.
Ms. Colquitt has been the counselor at Ninth Grade Academy since 2019.
