After growing up in Augusta County and attending Augusta County Schools, it is truly an honor to be able to work within a school system that has had such a tremendous impact on my life. I grew up in Stuarts Draft and attended Stuarts Draft Elementary (now Guy K. Stump Elementary), Stuarts Draft Middle and graduated from Stuarts Draft High School. After High School I attended Virginia Tech where I received my degree in Pre K-12 Health and Physical Education. After college I taught Health and Physical Education at Berkeley Glenn Elementary for 1 year, Stuarts Draft High School for 1 year and Stuarts Draft Elementary for 8 years, during which time I also helped coach the High School Football team and was the Head Boys Track Coach. In 2010 I finished my Masters degree in School Administration from Liberty University. My first administration experience was acting as the Assistant Principal at Wilson Elementary for 3 years before being hired as Principal at Guy K. Stump Elementary School where I will be entering my fourth year. Being able to work in the building that I attended as a youngster and within the community that I grew up in has been a dream come true.
My wife Jessica and I live in Stuarts Draft with our children Gabe (15) and Maddie (13) who both attend Stuarts Draft Schools and are busy doing the normal things that parents of teenagers are doing. In our spare time we love the outdoors especially camping, hiking, hunting and fishing.
I am looking forward to another successful year here at Stump Elementary. If you ever have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
