Where were you born? Where did you grow up?
I grew up in the Hamilton, Ohio, area and went to Ross Local Schools.

My wife is from Columbus Grove and I went to Ohio Northern University.  When we decided to move back home from Charleston, South Carolina, Ada seemed like a great place to live.

High school principal

I truly believe that a strong school system can make a difference in a student’s life and future.  As a result, I find it very rewarding to work with such great teachers, students and parents.

What is your favorite thing about this community?
I am so impressed with the community pride in Ada.  I see this in the support of the school system, the long standing community traditions and the way people support one another when they are in a time of need.  Also, as an Ohio Northern University graduate, I enjoy staying involved with the university and seeing how the university supports our school.
