Principal's Message

Sean Bailey

OES Families,

What an exciting time it is to be a part of the OES family!  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, I have a passion for this community!   My wife, Candra, our four children (Noah-9yrs, Lincoln-5yrs, Graham-3yrs, Claire-2yr) and I live just steps away from our building.  My family shares my excitement and eagerness to get started strong!   


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 2019-20 school year great!


Dr. Sean Bailey,
Owingsville Elementary School
