Viking Community,

I write to you today with great pride as the newly appointed Principal of Lanier Early College High School. It is my privilege to continue serving this incredible school community. Lanier Early College High School is a truly special place, with a staff that is committed to the common goal of ensuring students graduate college, career, and life ready. As the Principal, it is my promise to continue this mission.

The 2018-19 school year is my 15th year in education. It has been my honor to spend every one of those years at Lanier Early College High School. During my time at Lanier, I have been fortunate to serve in the capacity of teacher, coach, school improvement facilitator, assistant principal, and academy director. The opportunity to serve in so many roles has afforded me the chance to witness first-hand the dedication of every staff member on campus. I am excited to continue working side by side with so many talented and hard-working individuals. Over my time at Lanier ECHS, I have strived to improve post-secondary outcomes for all students. I am committed to developing programs that meet the needs of each individual child, and assisting every student to live up to his or her potential. I know we have the team in place to accomplish these goals, and I could not be more thrilled to lead it.

As Vikings, we are bound together by the values of pride, respect, and responsibility. Together we will move forward in unity around these ideals. I look forward to collaborating with all members of the school community as we continue the development of a campus culture that celebrates the contributions of all students and staff. I am committed to improving our school to ensure everyone feels welcome and safe at Lanier.

The possibilities for the future are endless at Lanier Early College High School. Our long-standing programs continue to flourish, as new programs such as P-Tech Career Launch and ECHS offer great promise for the future leaders of this community. The community of Lanier is grounded in such rich culture and tradition, and I am proud to be a part of this great Viking family. Once a Viking, Always a Viking!
