Dear Elbert County Family,

    As a lifelong resident and a 1990 graduate of Elbert County Comprehensive High School, it is truly an honor to be the Superintendent of the Elbert County School District.   I am committed to this school district and community and will serve all stakeholders with the highest of expectations for myself.   

    Growing up in our school system, it was always my dream to become a teacher and the principal of Bowman Elementary School.  After realizing that dream and later serving as the Elbert County Middle School principal, I started to realize that my next dream was to be superintendent.  I am blessed that I now have this opportunity to serve our students, our employees, and this community in this position.   I am thankful that I had great teachers growing up in Elbert County that challenged and prepared me to be able to reach my dreams.

    Teachers/certified staff, support/classified staff, and administration in conjunction with parents and community members have laid the groundwork for student success over the past several years and together we can continue to strive to improve student outcomes.  We face many challenges in the days to come and will face these together as one family.  We will work together to address the needs of all of our students and provide them with the opportunity to learn. 

    The Elbert County School District Family is near and dear to my heart.  All of our past and current teachers, administrators, and support staff have laid a foundation for excellence, and I challenge our students, parents/guardians, community members and employees to continue to strive for excellence.  I believe in all of you.  No matter what role in which you serve, you are valuable to each and every one of our students.  No matter what we face, we are in this together, and I promise to always put this school district first.  

    In closing, I was fortunate to have great parents, educators, and community role models that allowed me to dream as a little boy and reach my dreams.  I believe we owe it to our students to teach them to dream and provide them with the opportunities to achieve their dreams.  We can do this together - Every Student, Every Day!
