I am very privileged to be starting my 7th year as the Superintendent at Shelby-Rising City Schools. The District has transformed over the last few years and it has been an exciting and rewarding process. As I enter my 28th year in education I continue to be motivated and excited by the success of students!  Looking forward to a great 2019-2020 school year.
