About Me

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 2021-2022 school year marks my 26th 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 sixth 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 Superintendent of the Strasburg C-3 School District.  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"!
