Hello Panther Family, 

It is my honor to serve as your high school principal. This is my

was the high school principal at Stringer Attendance Center for
9 years. During my 24 years in education, I have served 16 years
in administration and 8 years as a classroom teacher/coach. I
have also served on the Smith County Board of Education for
the past 6 years, for the past 2 years I have served as president
of the school board. I have also served 3 years on the M.H.S.A.A.
