William Brown has been named Davis High’s new principal. A meet and greet was held at 4:15 on Monday, June 10, at the District Office.
Brown last worked in the Twin Rivers School District as a principal of Smythe Academy of Arts and Sciences, a charter school for junior high students.
Although he has not always been a high school principal, Brown has worked almost everything else on a high school campus.
“I have been everything from a vice principal to a counselor to a para-educator. I have done everything but drive a bus,” Brown said.
Being a high school principal has been a dream for Brown ever since he graduated from high school himself and later attending Fresno State to achieve that goal.
“I am now living my dream,” Brown said.
The new principal is motivated to bring 15 years of experience in education to DHS.
“I am fired up more than any other job I’ve had,” Brown said.
Brown’s passionate attitude towards his new job gushed at the meet and greet.
“Davis is a rare opportunity,” Brown said. Davis is a great school according to Brown, but can be even better still.
Brown wants address the achievement gap to help DHS be the best it can be. However, for the first few weeks, Brown hopes to “get to know everybody and learn everybody’s names.”
The new DHS principal wants students, staff and parents to contact him with questions, comments and suggestions. His email and contact information will be available July 1, when he officially takes office.
“I hope you are excited as I am,” Brown said to the crowd as his closing statement.
