Principal's Bio


I was born in Panama City, Florida but grew up in the town of Chipley, Florida. I attended school in Chipley where I graduated from Chipley High School in 1974. Upon graduation from high school, I attended Troy State University (Troy University now) and graduated in 1978 with a degree in Health, Physical Education, Health, and Recreation. I worked for the Montgomery YMCA, Leisure Services in Dothan, and the Enterprise YMCA before my employment with the Enterprise City Schools in 1998. I taught elementary physical education at Hillcrest Elementary, served as Interim Assistant Principal and Principal at Pinedale Elementary School prior to coming to Harrand Creek in 2005. My work experiences in three different schools in Enterprises along with my experiences as a parent two children who are products of the Enterprise City Schools system give me a great appreciation for our school system.

My wife, Wanda, and I have been married for 30 years. Our son, Luke is married and lives in Columbia, South Carolina. He and Stephanie have one daughter, Stella, who is a joy to be with. Our daughter, Leah, lives in Dothan and teaches cheerleading and gymnastics. I enjoy playing my mandolin and guitar and fishing when I get the opportunity to do so.

 It is an honor to be at Harrand Creek Elementary and to have the opportunity to work with a dedicated faculty. The smiles I see each morning as students arrive at school are reassuring to me that they look forward to their day of learning.
