It was with great joy that I became the principal of Central High School. It is indeed a worthy challenge I face to be part of the team to help Central regain its rightful place as one of the top schools in the state of Georgia. I am a native of Camilla, GA, where I attended and graduated from Mitchell-Baker High School. I received a B.S. degree in Political Science with Teacher Certification from Florida A & M University, a M.Ed. and Ed.S. in Educational Administration and Supervision from Albany State University, and I am presently working on my Ed. D. at Georgia Southern University. After graduating From FAMU, I began my career in education as a Prevention Specialist at Fairview Middle School in Tallahassee, FL. I eventually went back to my hometown where I served as a social studies teacher at Mitchell-Baker High, and eventually as the Director of the Catch The Vision Alternative Program. I also served as the Head JV Boys Basketball Coach and Assistant Varsity Coach on several championship winning teams at my alma mater.I moved to Macon in 1998 to serve as the Head Boys Basketball Coach at Southwest High School. I also taught a variety of social studies courses at Southwest. During my time at Southwest I was selected to participate in the Bibb County Leadership Institute.
After leaving Southwest in 2004, I taught Georgia Studies at Howard Middle School for one year, and then served as Assistant Principal at Howard Middle for two years. In 2007, I was appointed as the principal at Burke Elementary School. After Burke’s closing in 2009, I was tasked to serve as principal at Union Elementary School, where I served for 5 years, before being tapped to become the Lead Charger.
I am the proud father of 3 (Megan, Raynisha, and Trey), and the humble husband of Zandreal (20 years and counting). My desire is that every child I come into contact is afforded the same opportunities to succeed that my children had, therefore every action I take is dedicated to that goal.
