Principal

Greetings Panther Family,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I am honored to serve as your Pine Ridge High School Principal. With a thankful heart, I am joining you, and this amazing Pine Ridge Panther School Family. I will be a servant leader to you and every student, staff member, parent, and community partner in the Panther Nation. I thank you for trusting Pine Ridge High School with your child's academic, social, and emotional learning needs. My team and I are fully committed to ensuring a world-class education for your student at Pine Ridge High School.

At Pine Ridge High School, my vision is a school culture is built upon the following core values:

1. Nurturing meaningful personal RELATIONSHIPS amongst all members of our school family in which we treat one another with dignity, respect, kindness, and compassion.

2. Cultivating INNOVATIVE LEARNING ACTIVITIES – collaborative in nature that makes learning fun and ignites a passion for learning in our students.

3. Ensuring EVERY STUDENT GRADUATES within 4 years and is prepared for college and/or the career of their choosing.

4. Protecting the physical, emotional, and intellectual SAFETY of every member of our school family.

I believe all students should have the opportunity to prepare themselves for life after graduation and, therefore, will continue to provide them with an engaging, rigorous curriculum as well as offer multiple opportunities for Industry Certification, AP, Dual Enrollment, and AICE credits. We are proud to offer our remarkable Cambridge Program, Health and Manufacturing Academies, and Pre-Apprenticeship HVAC Program. We will push our students to think critically, analyze, and interpret complex curricula.

As an educational leader, I want all our students to feel included and safe and valued when they come to school. Therefore, I will work to add even more courses and extra-curricular programs such as clubs and sports to the school, to ensure all students have an outlet to express themselves and enhance their talents. Your child will remember Pine Ridge High School and the many memories he/she will make. They will be surrounded by and taught by the best faculty and staff in the nation.

This will be a transformational year for Pine Ridge High School. Panther Nation is Rising Up! I look forward to working with you - listening to you - and growing with you. I have served many years as a high school principal, a leader in the US Army, and as a husband and a father of my own children. I will love and care for your children as I do for my own. I look forward to meeting you soon! Please reach out if there is anything that I can do to assist you.

Together, with Panther Pride - We Are Pine Ridge!!!
