Welcome to Eastern Hancock! I am humbled and honored to serve as the Superintendent in this amazing community. As a resident of Hancock County, I understand the source of pride that exists within the Eastern Hancock community, and I look forward to learning more about all of the things that make Eastern Hancock such an amazing place.

The qualities that attracted me to Eastern Hancock are the same things that attract a growing number of families who choose EH each year. As parents, we all want to send our students to school knowing they are looked after and loved by the adults in charge of caring for them during the school day. We want them to make friends, be involved, and love their school experience. We also want them to feel successful each day, and acquire the knowledge and attributes they will use as successful adults. These things happen at Eastern Hancock every day!

Because we are a small school, our students have a unique advantage. Each student is able to experience school in a tight-knit school community where nearly everyone knows their name and is able to challenge them to learn, grow, and achieve each day. Having our three schools on one campus and under one roof adds to the family-like atmosphere at Eastern Hancock and gives students a sense of security and confidence as they progress through grade levels. Students have numerous opportunities to participate in advanced courses, fine arts, sports, and other extracurricular activities.  

I look forward to working alongside students, parents, community members, and the amazing staff members at Eastern Hancock to ensure continuance of the legacy of success at Eastern Hancock. Eastern Hancock is an amazing place, and I couldn’t be more excited about being a Royal!
