Degrees and Certifications:
Greetings! I am honored to be able to serve as the Assistant Principal of SOAR Academy. This is my 13th year in education with 10 years in Bibb County Public Schools. Prior to this appointment, I served as the GEAR UP Graduation Advisor of Rutland High for two years. Other positions that I have held include: Athletic Coach, Career Technical Instruction Coordinator, and Special Education co-teacher at Southwest High School.
I firmly believe that all children can learn and education is the key to a successful future. I graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor's of Arts in Communication at Forty Valley State University where I played college football. I obtained my Master’s degree in Education in 2007 at Albany State University, and I completed my Specialist degree in Administration in 2009 from Cambridge College.
I have been married for 12 years to my beautiful wife Felicia who is an educator as well. We have a 10-year-old and 5-year-old son name Willie III and Matthew, as well as a lovely daughter name Winter Grace. I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, and watching sports.
Please know that it is my calling, passion, and purpose to support every student with the necessary guidance and accountability to ensure their success.
