It is my honor and privilege to join the Valley Academy team as your new principal.  This is my 19th year in education which started at Central Davidson High School as a business teacher and coach.  I have served administrative appointments at Central Davidson, North Davidson, and Ledford Sr. High. In my spare time my wife and I own and operate Brown & Company chair cover and linens.  I look forward to meeting with all stakeholders to learn as much as I can about the school’s staff, students, community, and business partners.  I hope to learn about successes as well as challenges.  I have developed a plan that will allow for all to have the ability to participate in growing and developing Yadkin Valley Regional Career Academy.

I am very excited about working with each of you and am invested in working together to make Valley Academy an exemplar STEM school in the state of North Carolina.
