The school board approved the appointments at its June 20 meeting. According to the Cobb County School District, Giles said she’s excited to continue serving students in the Mableton area.

“Pebblebrook is a staple in this community,” she said. “The school’s academic focus, highly-decorated Cobb County Center for Excellence in the Performing Arts program, and competitive athletics program attract students from all over the county. I am excited to be a part of this rich heritage.”

Joshua said he was “honored” to be chosen to lead students, teachers and staff at Lindley. He described the new role as a “homecoming” since he began his career in school administration at Lindley Sixth Grade Academy, the school district said. 

“I consider the opportunity to stick and stay in Mableton to lead the next flock of Falcons to be very exciting,” he said. Lindley Middle continues to soar to higher heights! With Lindley’s newly developed STEM Academy, it truly is a great day to be a Falcon.”
