Reaching out to the Knowledge Base-As an instructional leader, we provided avenues for our students to succeed academically, extra-curricular activities or competitions, learn and serve through the community and via Career Technical Education. My philosophy was educating the whole child and we excelled in these areas by accomplishing meeting state and national standards via academic performance, championship debate, spelling bees, oratorical and athletic programs, successful fundraising and serving the needs of others in the community, and successful Career Technical Programs achieving Business Industry Certification and producing students in the work force to benefit not only themselves but the business industry with their talents.
