Close up of Dr. Bobby Davis, Principal

Head Principal: Dr. Bobby Davis

I am a native of DeSoto County and grew up in Southaven. I am a 1992 graduate of Southaven High School and eventually pursued a bachelor's and master's degree from the University of Memphis. I earned a second master's degree from Freed-Hardeman University and a specialist and doctoral degree from Union University. I returned to DeSoto County Schools as an educator nearly 20 years ago. I taught at Oak Grove Central Elementary in Hernando for four years, worked at Central Services in Hernando for eight years, and returned to the school setting as an assistant principal in 2016. I have been working at LCHS since 2019 and will begin my first year as the head principal in the 2023-2024 school year. I am very excited to have this opportunity and look forward to a great year!
