    Principal 

    I have been an administrator in Canton Public Schools for 13 years and selected administrator of the year 4 out of the 13 years. I have served as principal of Huey L. Porter Middle School since its inception in April 2012. The school received a Successful school rating under my leadership during the 2016-2017 school year with the support of our great staff. During the 2018-2019 school year while serving as principal, a sixth-grade student (Kristen Rhodes) scored 27 on the ACT and was recognized by the State Board of Education. I have participated in the Millsaps College Principals' Summer Institute.
