Greetings Stars Family:  
I am thrilled to be joining the Rich South High School family as the new principal.  Rich South has a strong tradition of excellence and a promising future for even greater accomplishments.  Whether you are a current student, parent, employee, alumnus, or community member, the “Star Pride” runs deep, and Rich South is poised for the next level of greatness. 


Moving forward, Rich South High School’s mission is focused on students and student success.  Our mission will be reinforced by four pillars: academic progress, school pride, post-secondary preparation, and citizenship. With a staff focused on improving teaching and learning, Rich South students will be prepared to compete globally for scholarships and success at selective colleges.  As a community, we will remain committed to building school spirit and making connections that foster strong relationships and fond memories of high school.  An emphasis on post-secondary planning will ensure college and career readiness with a tailored plan that meets each child’s individual needs.  Our students will develop good moral character that empowers them to become productive and responsible citizens ready to change the world. Commitment to these four pillars will guide the decisions that impact our students’ achievement.


I value the importance of partnerships with families and the community, and my goal is to make sure our connection remains strong. I will need your help in designing the future of our beloved school. Our goals are ambitious, and collectively they are achievable. I look forward to having conversations with you individually, as well as, in groups to establish our action plans for student success.


There are amazing things on the horizon, and I look forward to working with you.  Together, our potential is limitless. Rich South Stars will be able to go anywhere and become anything. Rich South is a place where our students’ dreams become their reality.
