A Message from Our Principal


Family. Whether you grew up watching Happy Days, George Lopez, Seventh Heaven, or most recently Modern Family, this concept never changes. Family is defined as, “…a social group whose principle function is provision for its members.” With this in mind, I would like to welcome all to the Kennesaw Mountain Family. From my first interactions with students, staff and parents, I have felt accepted and have been embraced as one of Kennesaw Mountain’s own. I extend this same greeting to those who are new to Kennesaw Mountain, to those who presently call Kennesaw Mountain home, and to those who have already passed through Kennesaw Mountain in their academic pursuits. Once a Mustang, Always a Mustang!

If indeed the major function of a family is “…provision for its members…”, I would like to issue a series of challenges to all Kennesaw Mountain stakeholders to remain true to this characterization.

I challenge the Kennesaw Mountain administration to provide any and all necessary resources to allow our students the ability to achieve both in the classroom and in the community.

I challenge the Kennesaw Mountain staff to continue to hone their teaching skills so instruction may be delivered to learners effectively, efficiently and precisely.

I challenge the Kennesaw Mountain parents to continue to provide the necessary support for our children; academic support, financial support, and most importantly, emotional support.

Finally, I challenge the Kennesaw Mountain students to always put forth their best efforts with their school work; when they are tired, hungry, stressed, and all the other circumstances they will face as high school learners. This will be no easy task!

When the Kennesaw Mountain community pulls together, the sky is the limit for our kids!

I would like to thank those in the Kennesaw Mountain Family who have put their trust and confidence in me to guide their children through the next years of their lives. It is an awesome responsibility and I pledge to provide your children the best education possible which will prepare them for the rigors of post high school and beyond.
