Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year!


I am very thankful to be part of the GHS family and I am quite excited to be starting another school year!

Our school reflects our community’s values for hard work, honesty and respect. We will continue to instill these values and prepare our kids to be successful in all their future endeavors - whatever pathway they may choose!


GHS has a robust CTE and trade department, a competitive athletic department, and we strive for academic excellence in our classrooms. We know that high expectations lead to high success rates! 

I came into public education after serving both, as a law enforcement officer and a commissioned officer in the US Army. Both experiences had a great impact on my life, and  prepared me to meet challenges and make difficult decisions. My own son graduated from GHS in 2018, and I appreciate our traditions and am proud to call Gatesville home!

Thank you and welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!  

Go Hornets!
