Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

I am excited to join the North Stanly High School Staff and Community serving as Principal for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. I have worked in Stanly County School system for the last 28 years. During my career I served as a Teacher, Coach, Assistant Principal, Principal, and Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction.

Educational leadership is my passion. I believe the success of every child’s education depends largely on the relationship between home and school.  I recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from home, school and community. We know a strong partnership between school and home will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our student’s success. NSHS will do the very best to carry out our responsibilities for keeping your child safe while providing a quality education. 

One of the most important aspects of my work here at North Stanly High School will be building strong positive relationships with students, staff and community. You will find me in the hallways, classrooms, extracurricular and athletic events. I look forward to working with all stakeholders at NSHS. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance.
