I am both honored and excited to be the new Superintendent of Education for the Stone County School District. Our district is blessed with great people, an excellent location, and a wealth of potential. Together we will seek and execute new strategies to meet the financial and academic needs of our students. We will strive to have a district that prepares our students to be life-long learners, productive citizens and to make sure they receive a quality education in a safe environment. Now is the time to embrace and implement new methods or procedures that will ensure a bright and successful future for the students of the Stone County School District. I look forward to working diligently to make our goals become a reality.
