Principal's Message

I bring you greetings from JAGUAR COUNTRY! Lexington, Mississippi, the heart of Holmes County!  Known for her rich earth that for years has supplied food to the world, the Holmes County area possesses another resource that must be utilized - the MINDS of her youth. A resource capable of supplying the infinite needs of an ever-changing society, these precious commodities must be nurtured in order to realize their potential.  Our mission at Holmes County Central High School is to educate students so that they dare to dream and desire to achieve anything their minds can conceive.

As principal of Holmes County Central High School, I pledge to build and lead a formidable team that will embrace our vision, will be loyal to our mission and personify our motto. Our team consists of administrators, faculty, staff, students, parents and the community. Together we will cultivate fertile minds, sow seeds of knowledge and reap bountiful harvests of successful contributors to society.

Education is a very fluid institution that demands flexibility from its stakeholders. School leaders must stay abreast of best practices and be able to implement them through providing effective professional development and follow-up support. It is my intent that we utilize every asset at our disposal in effort to achieve our goal of becoming a “Premier” school.  The Mississippi Assessment Program (MAP) is the main barometer that measures academic success, and it will be the task of Holmes County Central High School to prepare our students to excel in every area. Our teachers will utilize effective planning and best practices, our leaders will support and monitor instruction.

Together we will accomplish the honorable task of PREPARING OUR STUDENTS TO LEAVE HOLMES COLLEGE AND CAREER READY, holding true to our school motto, EDUCATION FIRST! STUDENTS ALWAYS! 

G. Torrie Jackson, Jr., Principal
