Mr. Rasheem Neloms

Dear Family and Friends of the Wagener-Salley High School Community,

I am honored and humbled to be afforded this opportunity to serve as the principal of Wagener-Salley High School. In my 20 years as an educator, I have taught middle and high school, coached several sports, advised numerous clubs, served as an Assistant Administrator, Assistant Principal and as an Instructional Coordinator. Sharing in this journey with me is my wife of 17 years Amy, my son Rasheem Jr (16), and my daughters Imani (13) and Naima (8).

Through all of these experiences in my educational and life journey, I have developed the belief that education is the greatest equalizer. As I grow as a person and an instructional leader, I understand that success does not rest where we begin but how we maximize our talents, pursuits, and purposes. As the newest member of the Wagener-Salley family, I seek to share this belief, lead with a servant heart and foster collaboration, so we can educate, motivate, and shape the futures of our children in helping them to become productive citizens and adults. 

As we navigate through these unprecedented times, we will face new obstacles that will challenge us to do things differently when it comes to how we educate our children. In order to continue the legacy of success that has been established by our faculty, staff, students, parents, and community members, we must be committed to open, honest and tactful communication with all stakeholders to ensure we make data-based decisions that is in the best interest of our scholars.

Yours in Education,

Mr. Neloms

It is my privilege to join the Wagener-Salley High School family.  I am a 20+ year veteran educator. I have served as a Teacher, School Social Worker and School Counselor. I have also served as The Director of School Counseling Services for two high schools and The District Director of Counseling services. The highlight of my career was serving as the South Carolina Department of Education, School Counseling Personnel State Liaison before coming to Aiken County Public School District as an Assistant Principal.

Prior to becoming an educator, I served in the US Army as an Aviation Operations Specialist. After leaving the Army, I entered the Ministry and have served as a Senior Pastor for the last twenty-two years. I posses a Doctorate in Christian Education (D.M.) from Beacon University, Master in Educational Administration, K-12 certified from Charleston Southern University, Master in Education in School Guidance and Counseling, K-12 certified from Cambridge College and a Bachelor of Social Work from Limestone College. I am currently an Ed.D candidate in Curriculum and Instruction, Cappella University.

I am married and we have nine children and five grandchildren with one on the way, due in October of 2018.

It is my belief as an educator that it is my duty to foster an environment that provides the absolute best possible education and the most opportunities I can for students.  At Wagener-Salley, it is our goal to prepare our students for college and careers in a safe and enriching environment. I look forward to strengthening our community partnerships, school spirit and overall school climate to help the Wagener-Salley family continue its rich legacy and heritage.
