Principal's Message

I have been proud to serve as Westside’s principal since 2005. I grew up in Indiana, but my wife and I chose to make Harrison County our home 19 years ago. We have found this community to be a wonderful place to live and raise our children.

Our school serves approximately 320 students in Pre-K through fifth grade. Many of our students are “legacies”, as their parents (and/or grandparents) also attended Westside as children. However, we are excited to welcome new families every year to the Westside community.

That we are entrusted with your children is a great honor and a responsibility we take very seriously. It is so exciting to watch our students, your children, learn and grow. They never cease to amaze me with their effort, their creativity, and their kindness to one another.

At Westside, we know that every child is unique, and we treat them as such. That said, we also set the bar high for our students. The only way to help them reach their full potential is to continually challenge their limits and teach them to do the same.

Please feel free to contact me if there is ever anything I can do to help you and your family.
