    "Every child deserves a champion; an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best they can possibly be."

    -Rita Pierson-


    Dear Wolf Pack,

    The 2020-2021 school year at Lincolnton High School will be different than any other that we have encountered in school history but we are ready because the fight is on! Just like many times in our lives uncertainty surrounds the start of the 2020-2021 school year. Regardless of the opposition, challenges, and adversity that we face, we will fight our way forward. We will taste defeat, and we will fail. In those moments we will find strength in each other, demonstrating the resilient behavior that defines us. A Wolf is always prepared to face the obstacles ahead, because a Wolf was built for the fight. BE RELENTLESS! THE FIGHT IS ON!

    I am entering my fiftheenth year in public education, tenth in adminstration, and my seventh year as a Principal. I am entering my second year as the Principal of Lincolnton High School, and I consider it an absolute privilege in that I have the opportunity to represent such a proud and ethusiastic school community. As the Principal of LHS I seek your loyalty, compassion, support, service, and positivity for LHS. While we stand on a rich history of accolades, achievements, and recognitions, we need the support of our community with helping LHS to ignite a path of excellence along our journey to new heights in every facet of our school. LHS will be inclusive, inviting, and the unifying force of our great community. The needs of our students have never been higher but neither has their potential to go out and impact our society in a very meaningful and positive way. Be their champions today so that we as a community can reap the benefits of their talents, skills, and services tomorrow. 



    Our Community, Our School, and Our Students! What exactly does this statement mean? It's more of a calling, brand, or even a mantra. Anyone who is associated with LHS as an alum, faculty, staff, student, parent, guardian, the community at large, volunteers, feeder schools, local representatives, etc, then I am asking you to carrying the banner for LHS. Join our faculty and staff in being champions of each student at LHS every day. We need all Wolf Pack to stand behind and support Our community, Our school, and especially Our students. 


    A Power and Relentless Pursuit of Excellence

    Excellence defined by the Wolf Pack - Excellence is not perfection but is the manner in which you perform or do something to the extent that you as an individual cannot possibly do it any better. Excellence is doing and giving your best when your best is required, which is each and every day!
