High School Principal

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I am very proud to be working with the staff, students, and family members of Skidmore-Tynan High School. As a Skidmore native and STHS graduate, I am motivated to ensure the success of our community and your children. Our campus goal is to make sure 100% of Skidmore-Tynan High School graduates are prepared to attend college, attend trade/tech school, join the military, or enter the workforce. As we go through this year together, our goal will be to continue to support and lead our students as we embrace our new theme “Hold the Rope.” We will accomplish this by acknowledging that every person on this campus has a role to play in accomplishing the goals we set.  I look forward to seeing both familiar and new faces. Please feel free to stop by, call, or email with any questions or concerns. By working together, we can make your child’s year both positive and successful.
