Lowndes High announces new principal

April 28, 2003

Valdosta - Wes Taylor is announced as the new Lowndes High Principal. "I'm really excited about coming to such a great community, that's growing and has a lot of opportunities," said Taylor.

Taylor comes to Lowndes High with quiet a bit of experience. He has more than 10 years in high school administration and nearly 20 years as an educator. "Lowndes High has a great reputation, and I think I'll benefit from the school, as well as the school benefiting from me," said Taylor.

Taylor served as principal of Lee County High for the past two years. Lowndes High is a bit larger, but he says the extra students won't be a problem. "With that many students, we have to make sure each student has their own identity and we can serve the entire student body," said Taylor.

Although he doesn't yet have an agenda, he assures teachers, students, and parents he'll be a fair and team-oriented leader. "I want to get into the school and find out what's working and what's not before I say what I want to change," said Taylor.

Taylor considers being a parent a big advantage in leading a school. "Every day I try to imagine myself on both sides of the desk and act not only as a principal and administrator, but also as a parent," said Taylor.

Taylor is still serving as principal of Lee County High. He'll assume the role of Lowndes High principal on June 30th.
