part of the team to help Central regain its rightful place as one of the top
schools in the state of Georgia. I am a

School. I received a B.S. degree in
Political Science with Teacher Certification from Florida A & M University,

State University, and I am presently working on my Ed. D. at Georgia Southern

During my time at Southwest I was selected to participate in the Bibb

leaving Southwest in 2004, I taught Georgia Studies at Howard Middle School for
one year, and then served as Assistant Principal at Howard Middle for two

I am the
proud father of 3 (Megan, Raynisha, and Trey), and the humble husband of
Zandreal (20 years and counting). My
desire is that every child I come into contact is afforded the same
opportunities to succeed that my children had, therefore every action I take is
dedicated to that goal.
