Superintendent's Message

Welcome to the West Bolivar Consolidated School District! I am honored to be joining a school district that shares a deep commitment to the success of EVERY child. This is a time of exciting change in our district. Our teachers and administrators are doing some remarkable work with students in our schools, and achievement continues to be on the rise.

It is my hope to usher West Bolivar Consolidated School District into a tradition of excellence while enhancing learning opportunities for ALL students. I am a visionary professional with proven organizational and leadership skills. I have an outstanding record in school turnaround, educational leadership, and program management that are all built on a personal desire to contribute to the overall improvement of a school district.

My motto, “Children First,” is the premise for every decision made in the district. I look forward to working with everyone as we pursue an uncompromising commitment toward continuous academic improvement and excellence. Our school district WILL excel because of our collective efforts and commitment to our children.

Please feel free to contact our schools or the district office if you have any questions or concerns. We are here to serve, and we proclaim a successful 2019-2020 school year!
