Superintendent's Message

Welcome to the Jefferson Davis Parish School System Webpage. I am very proud to serve as the Superintendent of this great parish. Our motto: “Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow”, reinforces our top priority, which is to provide the best education possible to our students.


I have been blessed to be associated with the Jeff Davis Parish School System for 35 years, with roots in most of our communities. I began teaching Agricultural Science in January of 1980 at Elton High School until July of 1996 when I became Principal of Fenton Elementary School. After two years at Fenton Elementary, I moved to Lacassine High School and served as Principal for nine years. Since then, I have been at the Jeff Davis Parish Central Office serving as a Math and Science Curriculum Supervisor, Assistant Superintendent and now Superintendent. My wife, Chris, has taught nearly 25 years in Jeff Davis Parish with fantastic experiences at Lake Arthur Elementary and Fenton Elementary. Our daughter, Candace, is a 2005 Jennings High School honor graduate.


Jeff Davis Parish is a great place to educate students. We have hardworking, dedicated, passionate faculty and staff members at all 14 of our schools. They share a vested interest in providing the best education possible for the students, families and communities to which they belong. We work diligently to ensure that the experiences we create for the students of Jeff Davis Parish are positive and meaningful in their future academic and career pursuits. We look forward to challenging their critical thinking and problem solving skills while fostering creativity through learning. I am extremely confident that the students of Jeff Davis Parish will be engaged and excited about the focus on learning and individualized growth that our teachers work diligently to foster on a daily basis.


As a strong supporter of the communities of Jeff Davis Parish, we look forward to the partnership we have with our students, parents and community leaders in pursuit of a tradition of excellence in education. Please visit our parish and school websites often and communicate with the schools and district office to learn more about the many exciting activities we host throughout the year.
