Principal's Message

It is indeed an honor for me to serve as the principal at Decatur High School. Our mantra of Pride, Tradition, and Excellence are not just words for us, they are our way of life. We have a tremendous faculty and staff here at DHS! They are highly trained and willing to go the extra mile for our students, parents, and the greater Decatur community.


I am currently in my twenty-eighth year in public education.  I am entering my third year as the principal at Decatur High School.  My family and I are incredibly proud to be a part of this school and community. My wife Dana and I have been married for almost 30 years!  Dana currently serves as the school secretary for Hartselle Intermediate School.   We have three children: Hannah is a first grade teacher at Benjamin Davis Elementary School, Lindsay is a nursing student at Calhoun Community College, and John Adam is a senior here at Decatur High. If we can be of any assistance to you in any way, please do not hesitate to contact my office. Go Raiders!
