As a 1987 graduate of McCormick High School, I have been truly blessed to continue my career where the Pride of the CHIEF remains - McCormick County Schools.  McCormick has some of the best children.  It is our joint responsibility (school, parents, and community) to prepare our children for not just a life, but a successful life.  I honestly hope that you will join me in preparing our students for tomorrow's global opportunities....not allowing them to settle for anything less than their best.
