Herbert had spent 21 years of career at Kittrell.After graduating from Fisk University in Nashville in 1971, Herbert taught at the school here for six years in physical education, science and social studies classes, and served as the basketball coach for girls and boys.
He then spent 12 years as an assistant principal at Riverdale High before returning to Kittrell as principal October 1990.
"I will always consider Kittrell to be home," said Herbert, who also earned master's and education specialist's degrees from MTSU."I've had some very good experiences at Kittrell.I will be leaving behind a very competent faculty and staff who will be more than willing to work with parents and students and most importantly with the new administration coming on."
While at Kittrell, Herbert launched an academic incentive that rewarded students in grades 4-8 for their report card progress with an A being worth $3, a B worth $2 and a C worth $1 for every grading period.The students could earn up to about $520 that would go to a college or technical school fund, and they'd collect it after earning a high school diploma.
"The program was set up to help young people to be employable," Herbert said.
One of the goals in his new post will be to work with the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce and local businesses in establishing incentives for employees to earn high school diplomas or the equivalent GED (General Educational Development) certificates, Herbert said.
Another goal will be to provide a job placement service for the adult education students.
"I am very excited to take on this new adventure," Herbert said.
Herbert in recent years has competed for other jobs in the district, including high school principal and system director.
A black administrator, Herbert also filed a racial discrimination lawsuit against school officials Dec. 29, 2003, on the grounds that he was passed up for promotion to serve as a high school principal in a district that had no minorities or women in that position at the time.
