The following are his thoughts about Carroll High School: “I would love to see CHS continue to be a beacon of hope for the local community and beyond. Carroll is recognized as a proud and tradition rich institution of excellence. The facts speak for themselves as the school has produced and continues to produce leaders in various industries and professional fields. As a graduate of this institution I have a constant reminder of the school and the community it serves. I am a product of this school and community and I must represent them to the best of my abilities.”
“I believe Carroll High School has shown its extensive reach, most recently with the success of its academic programs and extracurricular programs. I would love to see Carroll High School continue to build upon these successes and lead the local community and beyond. This is all very achievable with the entire Carroll High School Family pulling together with one concerted effort. The effort of making Carroll High School the “Great Institution” it was intended to be from its inception.”
