  • Bryan Station Family, 

    I am excited to serve our students, staff, and community as Interim Principal of The Academies of Bryan Station for the 2019 -2020 school year. Over the past three years, I was fortunate to be part of the leadership team that transformed us into a Career Academy school by serving as an Interim  Associate Principal and then the Medical Academy Principal at Bryan Station High School. During this time, we've celebrated many great accomplishments together. Our overall student attendance increased, we have secured several key community partnerships leading to more opportunities for job shadowing,

    internships, clinical experiences, etc., and have seen increased participation by students in extracurricular activities. The culture around #defendingstation as the Pride of the North-side gained momentum in the community, the news, and on social media. Schools across Fayette County, the Commonwealth, and from other states sent their leadership teams to be led on tours by our student ambassadors and learn about the systems and structures in place that prompted such amazing
    growth. The effort of our students to embrace this new way to do education and
    shine as examples of what is truly possible when one applies real world,
    relevant, and rigorous learning to the world around them is enough to make anyone enthusiastic about the possibilities ahead. 

    We've laid a strong foundation by empowering student leadership, growing teacher capacity, forming strong business partnerships and receiving great support from the district. Others will be watching closely how we handle this transition into the next chapter of defending Station as an exemplary model Academy school. Together we will collaborate for the success of all students by

    continuing to host family nights, offering a wide-variety of clubs/activities, communicating clearly, and sharpening our systems that enable staff to work together. Teachers and staff meet weekly in Small Learning Communities (SLCs) to discuss how they can collaborate to best support our students, make data informed decisions, provide wrap around services from our CARE Center, and best communicate to all stakeholders. The practice allows us to make a building of over fifteen hundred (1,500+) students feel like a much smaller environment where positive relationships are paramount and all students are supported. 

    Finally, I'd like to share The Academies of Bryan Station Mission Statement with you: Our faculty and staff will be RELENTLESS in ensuring all students graduate high school career and college ready. I wholeheartedly believe that this work is making a difference and changing lives because I've witnessed students earn industry certifications, which led to better jobs, college scholarships, increased motivation, and the confidence to pursue further education in their field of choice. As the Interim Principal, I will continue to make sure that all decisions are made by focusing on what is best for students. I cannot achieve our mission and vision without your help. It truly does “take a village” and I look forward to meeting with parents, alumni, local religious groups, and forming community partnerships that will benefit our students in their path to becoming career and college ready. I look forward to working with you and your children throughout the year and to seeing them grow intellectually, academically and socially. 

    Please feel free to contact me if you have concerns or ideas for improvement. I’m looking forward to the best year yet as a Defender!
