Welcome to White Pigeon Jr/Sr High School. I start my 17th year in education in the 2018-19 school year, 15 as an administrator. I attended Central Michigan University on a scholarship where I played football and also worked on my undergraduate degree. With the arrival of my first child, Mitchell (27), I entered the work force at Starr Commonwealth and finished my Bachelor's Degree at Olivet College in Health, Physical Education and Recreation with a minor in History. After seven years at Starr, I entered the education field at Hastings High School where I was an alternative education teacher for two years. In 2001, I became the Dean of Students at Galesburg-Augusta High School, where I spent two years in that role and eight as the High School Principal. I then spent five years at Lake Fenton Schools as the High School Principal. I have two other children, Landry (23) and Madison (17).
At White Pigeon, we will focus our school culture on a family atmosphere where all students are Chiefs and we will all be working toward the same goals. A safe and secure environment will be worked toward by both students and staff. Students will identify to staff when they see something that is inappropriate or unusual and staff will in return act immediately and appropriately to make sure the environment remains safe. Responsibility, Respect and Relationships will be the foundation of what the culture is based on in addition to words such as Integrity, Honesty, and Accountability. We want to best prepare students for whatever their next step is at White Pigeon and will work with any/all students who want to take that next step.
Again, welcome to White Pigeon and if there is anything I can do to assist you, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 269-483-7679.
