Dear Parents and Guardians of the Aiken High Community,

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Aiken High School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education and exciting future related to our Cambridge International Program. I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than fifteen years. I have worked with a variety of students' ranging in age from middle school aged through and including college. I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to the Hornets’ Community and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.

Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by AHS through building strong relationships with parents, students and community partners. We will focus on bolstering our pioneering Cambridge program that continues to be the first and only in the state. We will utilize organically established methods to use data to drive instruction and provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that we can continue to increase ALL of the students' achievement.

 Being a product of Aiken County all the way through our entire County’s education system pre-K to college, I am a proud citizen of this wonderful place to work, live, and be around great individuals. Aiken County has been my home and currently is the home of my family. My family includes my wife and fellow educator, Stephanie, and two children Coleman and Natalie. Both of our children attend Aiken County schools and involve themselves in many of the greats things that many of our young people do in this area.

On behalf of my family, thank you for the warm reception into the area as the school’s new principal. I look forward to working as a team with all students, teachers, staff, and families to make their high school year’s the best and most rewarding time to date.
