  • Welcome! I am honored to serve as the principal of South Middle School. I am excited about the school year and I look forward to meeting the students and parents. We understand here at South that building relationships is important to helping every student be successful in school. A unique and special attribute of South Middle School is the positive culture and climate that makes being a Cougar so unique. From the school Fight Song to student-centered instruction, South Middle School is a progressive and postive school environment for approximately 600 students grades 6-8! 
     
    I am excited to start my eleventh year in education this 2017-2018 school year. In addition, to my role as principal of South Middle School, I also serve on the district Equity's Leadership Team, Baker Univeristy Summer Staff and other civic and community organizations. It is my pleasure to give back to the community, as I believe the role of an educator is to empower others in both character and education. I have two sons; Leonjay and Keith Jr. who also attend Lawrence Public Schools. 
     
    Please reach out to me with suggestions, concerns, or to become more involved. I would love to hear from you!
