Middle School

Dr. Steven Holifield, principal of UMS

It is great to be a part of the Jacket Family! I have been in education since 2001. I served as a general education teacher for 4 years, a special education teacher for 5 years, and an administrator for 10 years. I am married to Myleia Shirley Holifield, and we live in Chunky. One of my greatest blessings is being a father to three great children-Keeton, Brooklyn, and Braxton. I am not only a principal in the Union Public School District, but I am a parent as well. My daughter will be in 6th grade and my youngest son will start Kindergarten this year. It is my goal for every student to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to be very successful in life and to experience a positive environment where they feel appreciated and valued.
