Message from the Principal

As the principal of Pender High School I dedicate myself to providing a safe, orderly, and consistent environment enabling all students to learn. I am excited about being part of the Patriot family and look forward to all of our students accomplishing great things this year and beyond. I have worked as a principal at Topsail and Cape Fear Middle Schools and as an assistant principal, teacher, and coach at 3 different high schools in Carteret, New Hanover, and Pender Counties. My experience in middle and high school enables me to create systems and procedures that prepare our students for graduation and the world that awaits them. I believe in setting high expectations for all students and creating an environment for those expectations to be met. All policies and procedures are created with the student's best interest in mind. I hope to remain a Pender Patriot for many years to come. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Parents, community, and school officials must work together in an effort to maximize student potential.
