 “I am excited for the opportunity to lead UMS. The teachers at UMS work so hard to ensure all students are successful academically and behaviorally. I am excited to be shoulder to shoulder with them each day in that work. As a native of Union, I understand our school district is the heart of the community. We will continue the tradition of striving for excellence because that’s what our students, staff, and community deserve and expect. It’s a great day to be a Yellow Jacket!”
