Message from the Superintendent

Thank you for visiting the superintendent’s page for Union School District! We are excited that you are utilizing our digital space to become more informed about our school system and that you want to be an active member of our school community. It is our goal to build a collaborative environment in which each student is recognized as a valuable member of the community who deserves the time and resources dedicated to their future success. As stated in the old Igbo and Yourba African Proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child”, we believe the same is true for educating our youth. With the support of our families and community members working with our dedicated educational staff, we can effect positive change in the lives of our students to promote productive futures. Thank you for being a positive part of our “village”.


Welcome to the superintendent’s page for Union School District. As your district superintendent I am excited to serve our small but strong community by helping to provide positive educational experiences and support to our children. Being a native of Clarion County, I grew up just north of our district boundary near Reidsburg. Upon graduating from Clarion Area High School in 1997, I attended Clarion University where I received my BSE in science education. After teaching for two years at Walkersville High School in Maryland, I was hired to teach science courses here at Union High School. During the four years in which I was here, I felt like a valued member of our staff and community which is why I wanted to return later as an administrator. After six years as a principal at Jeff Tech and five years as the principal at Clarion Area High School, I was able to return to Union School District in 2019 as your superintendent. It is with great pride and pleasure that I have the opportunity to serve our community as we work together in promoting our great traditions while also making positive changes for the benefit of our students.
