Lori Malone

Principal, Lori Malone


My name is Lori Malone, and I am the principal at Higgins Elementary.  This is my 30th year in education.  I have worked in several different school districts, but the last 15 years I have been at North Lamar.  I spent 10 years at Bailey Intermediate as a fourth grade math/science teacher, two years at Stone as assistant principal, and the last 3 years at Higgins Elementary as principal.  I am married to Carey Malone and have a son, Curt, that will be a senior this year at North Lamar High School.  In my free time, I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family and riding four wheelers at a place we have in Direct.  

Higgins is definitely a special place.  Our students range from 3 years of age to first grade.  It is wonderful to watch a child learn to read and develop their interests and personalities.  Our staff is professional and very involved with the students and their families.  We look forward to working with each family and their child's educational process.
