Greetings Panther Family!
It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that I come to you as the Proud Principal of the illustrious Forest Park High School. Go Panthers!
Forest Park High School is a school with great traditions and a legacy of greatness. I intend to honor that legacy through working diligently with all stakeholders towards continuous improvement and increased educational outcomes for all Forest Park High School scholars. Through this shared vision, I fervently believe that Forest Park High School will become the premier high school in the Southeast.
Since 2013, when I first served as the Media Specialist here at Forest Park High School, I have witnessed and appreciated the dedication, resiliency, and talent that resides within our campus and extends to our greater community.
From a philosophical standpoint, my personal mantra can be simply stated as “Excellence. Every Day.” In the words of Aristotle, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” Excellence is a habit that we already exhibit and it is my intention to make sure that we extend that excellence to all stakeholders.
Nothing has been more rewarding than watching our scholars and teammates grow and thrive. We will begin a new era of “Excellence. Every Day.”
