Welcome to Wells Jr. High and High school.  I am so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful family of teachers, students and community.  We have great students, excellent teachers and a community that loves and supports Pirate Nation! 

My priority is to ensure that every student at Wells JH/HS receives a quality education from highly educated and caring teachers, so that, when they walk across the stage and receive their diploma they are prepared for life in the real world. 

I received my Bachelors from Abilene Christian University, Master of Education from the University of Phoenix and Doctorate of Educational Leadership and Educational Psychology from the University of North Texas.  I have been in education for 12 years and ministry for 20+ years.

My wife Leslie and I are proud residents of Wells.  We have three children attending Wells ISD this year.  Laken beginning kindergarten, Harley in 4th grade and Savannah is a senior this year (Go Lady Pirates!!!).  My son Zack is a junior in college with his wife in Ohio, Ryan and his family live in Ft. Worth, and I am the proud grandpa of Braxton and Madiline.

As I begin my 5th year as Principal here in Wells I have never been more excited to start a school year than the upcoming 2016-17 year! If you are new to Wells come by and say hello.  I am looking forward to another wonderfully successful year working with you to prepare our students for a bright future.
