I received my Bachelors Degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from Delta State University. After a few years off I earned my Masters Degree in Curriculum & Instruction from University of Phoenix. After another brief break I decided to further my education. I earned my Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University.


I started in the education field at Strayhorn Junior High where I taught 8th grade Science for 3 years. After completing my third year I moved to Lake Cormorant Middle/High. While there I taught 7th grade Science, Biology 1, and 8th grade Science. After completing 8 successful years I decided to move up to administration. I serve as Assistant Principal for Senatobia Middle School for 2 years. After finishing there I decided to come back to Desoto County. I am very excited for this upcoming school year.

During my educational career I have served as the following:

Head Middle School Football Coach

Assistant Football Coach (Middle/High)

I am a product of the Mississippi Delta. I graduated from Greenville High School. After high school I attended Alcorn State University for one year. After completing one at Alcorn, I transferred to Delta State University. After completing my degree at Delta State I moved to Southaven, Mississippi, where I currently reside with my wife Mrs. Shereka Newson who teaches at Hernando High School. We have a son who attends Hernando Middle School and a daughter who attends Hernando Hills Elementary. I love to be around my family, hunt, fish, and sports.
