Cummins is originally from Caldwell County, but more or less started his teaching career in Trigg County. After teaching for half a year in Crittenden County in early 1985, Cummins transferred to Trigg County Elementary School in the fall. He taught there for five years before he began teaching seventh grade life science at the middle school in 1990. He remained there for the next four years. Cummins said he loves Trigg County and the only reason he left is because he got the opportunity to go back home and teach and coach at Caldwell County Middle School in 1994.
Cummins stayed in his home county until 2003. The following year, he became the assistant principal at Hopkins County’s Browning Springs Middle School. He said he is glad to be back in Trigg County for his first head principal job.
