     I am honored to serve my 28th year of education as the principal of T.R. Miller High School.   My career in education began by teaching high school History and coaching football, basketball and baseball.  I moved into administration in 2005 and have served as Assistant Principal, Principal, Career Tech Director, Federal Programs Director, Maintenance Director, Transportation Director and Curriculum Director.

     My passion and enjoyment has always emerged from working with young people and helping guide them towards their future.  I also enjoy reading, watching football, and especially spending time with my grandson. I have been married to Tammy for 30 years and we have two daughters.  Mallie is a graduate of Auburn University and is married to Errin Johnson, and they reside in Daphne with their five year-old son, Emerson. Marli is a recent graduate of Troy University and currently resides in Pensacola, Florida.
