Principal's Message

Sean Bailey

OES Families,

The 2020-2021 school year is upon us and it is different than any year we have experienced.  In light of the pandemic, our district has taken great precaution and are making decisions that are best for students.    Regardless of the world around us, it is still an exciting time it is to be a part of the OES family!

The educators within Owingsville Elementary School are among the most passionate and loving that I have found in any school building and I am so blessed to share the calling of teaching and caring for the children in our community!

  As principal, there is little more joy to be found outside of changing the lives of our children for the better here in Bath County.   I am a hometown guy; being raised and living in Owingsville, and a former OES student, I have a passion for this community!   My wife, Candra, our four children and I live just steps away from our building.  


I graduated from Bath County High School in 2003 and then continued my education at Morehead State University where I have completed all of my post-secondary education:

  • 2009 - Bachelors in Business Administration (Business and Information Technology Education)
  • 2012 - Masters in School Administration
  • 2017 - Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) - Educational Leadership and Technology

Furthermore, I have been in ministry for over 14 years.  I am blessed to serve as the pastor of Owingsville Christian Church, where my church family is so very supportive and loving.  What an amazing opportunity this will be to serve this community in both capacities. 

Above all, though, my heart is in the improvement of the lives of our children in Bath County.  I do not take this calling lightly and I will intentionally strive to be a positive, encouraging, and supportive face that your child will look forward to seeing each day.   

With your support, we will make your child's experience at OES amazing!


Dr. Sean Bailey,
Owingsville Elementary School
