    Welcome to Locust Grove High School and the beginning of another terrific year.  As we move into our ninth year serving the students and community of Locust Grove, I am very honored to transition from working with our middle school program to serving each of you as the new Locust Grove High School Principal.   


    Our vision for the 2017-2018 school year includes an intentional focus within the areas of Pace, Purpose, and Increased Expectations.  Our goal is that our Locust Grove graduates are college, career, and life ready immediately upon graduation.  In order to ensure our preparation program is a success;


    • We must take a personal inventory of the strengths and struggles for EACH one of our LGHS students. 


    • We must leverage individual student passion, and support our students when, where, and how they need it. 


    • We must focus those passions to define a more purposeful educational experience that speaks to the individual needs of our students.


    • We must raise the bar of expectations to include additional industry certification opportunities as we continue to also increase the exposure of our dual-enrollment and Advanced Placement programs.      


    As I enter my nineteenth year as an educator, I have had the pleasure to work with some amazing people and terrific communities, but I can honestly say that Locust Grove is the best place to call home.  I am thankful for this opportunity to continue my service to the Locust Grove community, and I look forward to a terrific year!


    Go Wildcats!
