Welcome to Hartselle Junior High School. I am so honored to serve as the principal and one of the leaders of our awesome school. If you are new to Hartselle and to HJHS, you are in for a real treat. Hartselle is full of wonderful people that work hard and truly care about each other, their community and school. These traits are but a few that make Hartselle so special. The faculty at HJHS is one of the finest families of educators I have ever been a part of. Students here are bound for success academically, athletically, artistically, and socially. We all have high expecations for ourselves, but we also work hard to support one another along our journey. I know that each of you will find Hartselle to be a special place this school year. I challenge you to do your part to make your positive mark on our school community as well.
