I received a Bachelors Degree of Science in Chemistry from Millsaps College in 2007 and a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from Delta State University in 2015.

It is a great honor and privilege to be principal of LCHS. Safety, academics, and extra-curricular activities are my top priorities as principal. My goal is to provide the students of LCHS with a safe environment where productive learning takes places with high expectations, as well as, a place where students can discover his or her passion while becoming lifelong learners. I look forward to a great school year building on the reputation of excellence that was set by my predecessor and appreciate your unwavering support.

This is my 15th year as an educator. I have a B.A. in Elementary Education from The University of Mississippi (1999) and a M.S. in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State (2016). I am licensed and highly qualified in the state of Mississippi to teach Elementary Education (4-6), English (7-12) Kindergarten (K-4), Social Studies (7-12), and Gifted (K-12).

I am married and have 5 children: Chris (24), Jacob (22), Ben (18), Max (15), and Rebecca (11). All of them are current or former Gators.
