    Hello Manheim Central Community,

    It's an honor and a blessing to have been afforded the opportunity to join the Manheim Central School District team as your Superintendent. The more I learn about all that this community does for students, the more excited I am to begin my journey as a Baron! I have also included a video and family snapshot that were created during the interview process if you'd like to take a look. 

    I am truly looking forward to working with all of you.
