Mrs. Alicia Prezzy, Assistant Principal

I was born and raised in Tennessee. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and my Master of Science in Curriculum and Instruction both from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. My blood still runs ORANGE! I moved to Georgia, where I taught 5th grade for 5 years in the Cobb County School System at Brumby Elementary School. I then completed my Administrative Certificate and Education Specialist Degree from the University of West Georgia. I began my administrative career in July of 1999 and remained in the Cobb County School School district until 2004.

I moved to SC in July 2004 after marrying Jerome Prezzy, the love of my life!  We have two beautiful daughters named Hannah and Hailey! Life is GOOD!

I am looking forward to expanding my horizons here at Lexington Elementary School where the Wildcats ROAR and we ALL see ourselves as family! Please feel free to contact me at aprezzy@lexington1.net.
