Superintendent Message

It is an honor and privilege to be in trusted with this role, and I cannot express how excited I am to work alongside the amazing people of our district and communities.

As Superintendent, my vision is to build upon the rich tradition and success that Benton Community has achieved over the years. Together, we will continue to provide an exceptional educational experience for our students while fostering a supportive and inclusive environment that empowers every learner to reach their full potential.

The foundation of any great school district lies within its people, and I am fortunate to be surrounded by an outstanding team of dedicated educators, administrators, staff members, and community leaders who are passionate about the success and well-being of our students. Together, we will collaborate and innovate to ensure that Benton Community remains a hub of educational excellence, where every child receives a Quality Education for a Lifetime of Learning!
