Josh Williams has returned to SSHS to serve as principal. He has been serving as an assistant principal, but said his heart is with the students and staff he’s missed desperately. When Derek Driver’s resignation was announced in May, Williams took the opportunity to return to the SSHS campus to once again serve and get to know the students in his role as principal. The move was announced at the end of the spring 2022 semester.

The campus will also have many new staff, new looks and Williams’ office anticipates, lots of new excitement.

The motto at SSHS is that “Everything Counts and Everyone Counts.”
