Principal's Message

  • It is with great excitement that I accepted the position of Lewisville High School Principal at tonight’s Lewisville ISD Board of Trustees meeting. It has been my absolute honor and privilege to serve Lewisville ISD, especially within the LHS feeder pattern. 


    I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to return to LHS! It will be tough to follow Mr. Kajs, but I am blessed to have the opportunity and will continue to build upon the foundation he helped lay throughout his tenure. As a former assistant principal, I know the expectations our students, parents, and community has for LHS, and I know the importance of the rich traditions established over the last 123 years. Trust me, I’m a proud Fighting Farmer and Farmer Pride lives in me!


    To share a little bit about myself… For the last nine years, I have served as principal of DeLay Middle School (many of you have probably seen me over the years as the announcer at Hey! Day). I accepted the position after spending four years as an assistant principal at LHS. Before that, I spent three years as an assistant principal at McKamy Middle School. My wife, Keri, is also a teacher in LISD and we have three wonderful kids. 


    I truly am honored to be given this opportunity, and to be a part of the Long Maroon Line. As principal, I will do all that I can to ensure students are in the best possible position to succeed. I’m sure the last several weeks haven’t been easy with at-home learning, but I know everyone is doing their best. Please take care of yourselves and finish this school year strong!  


    I look forward to meeting everyone soon! In the meantime, if you have questions or just want to say hello, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Lewisville is a special community, and I look forward to partnering with you in the education of your children. I can’t wait for our journey together!
