I graduated from Drexel High School in 1991. In 1996, I graduated from Missouri Southern State College with a Bachelor of Science in Social Studies Education. In 2004, I graduated from the University of Central Missouri with a Master of Science in Secondary School Administration and in 2008, I completed my Education Specialist Degree in School Superintendency. I am currently working to complete my Education Doctorate in School Leadership through William Woods University.
The 2017-2018 school year marks my 22nd year in education. I taught social studies for nine years before accepting my first administrative position in 2005 as high school principal and athletic director at Appleton City R-II. In 2008 I accepted my first Superintendent position with the Rich Hill R-IV School District. This is my second year serving as Superintendent at Drexel R-IV, and I am very excited about the opportunity to do so.
In 1999, I married Chrystal Reed, who serves as the assistant principal at Harrisonville Middle School. Our three children; Maycie, Kaleb and Mikah all attend school at Drexel.
I am proud to call Drexel home and proud to be a "Bobcat"!
