Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year

Welcome back Elkin City Schools families and friends! 

I know it doesn’t seem possible, but here we are again gearing up for another school year.  Our theme this year is Back in the Game.  I am so excited to start a new school year with students in our buildings. 

I’ll admit the last 18 months have been challenging for everyone, but I know we are focused and ready for all of our students to get back in the game!  Just like any good team, I know the Elkin City Schools faculty and staff are prepared.  I can’t wait for every new day this year will bring, and with our winning attitude, we will accept the challenges and overcome any obstacles.  

I look forward to seeing our students back in action.  I also look forward to seeing all of you - the returning players - and welcoming our rookies - 14 new beginning teachers. 

As the coach of this great team - I say it’s time to get out there and get to it.  We have lives to change, minds to shape, and leaders to make!   We will not fear the unknown.  We will live one day at a time and we will make this the best year ever!

I am so thankful to be the superintendent of such a great school system.  It is an honor to work with the ECS Board of Education and together we are committed to ensuring our students and teachers have a safe and healthy school year.

As we come back together for this new season, my prayer is that we will look forward, that we will find joy in the students we serve, and that we will have peace in our hearts each night knowing we did all we could to make our students feel special and loved.  

As a final note,  I want to extend my appreciation to all those who have worked hard through the summer to prepare for our students’ return.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you. If you have questions or concerns, I am available to listen and talk. Contact me at 336.835.3135 or email at

I AM #backinthegame
