Thank you for visiting the Nelson County Schools website.

August 2023
I am honored and privileged to have the opportunity to serve as your Division Superintendent.  I look forward to meeting students, parents, and staff.  I am excited about being part of Nelson and attending various school and community events.  I appreciate the support of all of our families.  I look forward to a great future together in Nelson County.

I am beginning my 20th year in education.  I received my Bachelor of Arts and Masters's degree from the University of Richmond where I also played basketball as well as track and field.  I earned my Admin and Supervision degree from Virginia Commonwealth University and my Doctorate of Administration and Supervision from the University of Virginia.  During my career, I have taught World History and Government in Henrico County, served as a high school assistant principal and high school associate principal in Henrico County, a high school principal in Spotsylvania County, and assistant superintendent for instruction in Louisa County.

Again, I look forward to a great future in Nelson County Public Schools. The engagement and support of our community will be critical to our success.  I am excited about this opportunity and will work hard to serve all of our students, staff, and families and celebrate all of our accomplishments. Please look for updates on this website and the NCPS Facebook page. You can also follow me on Twitter: @NelsonSupt and Instagram: nelsoncountysupt.
