To the parents/guardians, a heartfelt thank you for the trust you have placed in us to educate your children. Special greetings to the students of the Yazoo City Municipal School District. We are excited to have joined together, myself and the faculty and staff of the Yazoo City Municipal School District, on this journey where “Excellence is Our Expectation.” Excellence is what happens in the day-to-day interactions with students and faculty, in a community where learning is both productive and fun. Our core values and beliefs will embody and represent our Expectations, our Energy, and our commitment to Excellence to all that we do. Energy requires focus and priority for all. Excellence requires that we make the right decision the right way, at the right time for all our students. Excellence will take time, practice, and patience. Expectation requires planning and a constant strive to be better. So every day, as Superintendent, my goal is to approach the work I do personally with high energy levels, excellence and expectations. Excellence for the district will be the norm, not the exception.
