Parents, Students, and Faculty of Crownpoint High School,
As many of you may already know, I have resigned my position as Principal at Crownpoint High School effective July 31, 2015. I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience of serving as Instructional Leader for this outstanding school, however an opportunity presented itself late in the summer that was impossible to refuse. Therefore, I will be leaving New Mexico and the Gallup McKinley County Schools at the end of July.
I wish to extend my sincere thanks to the Faculty and Staff of Crownpoint for making this a GREAT place to live and work. My special thanks to Ms. Sheri Moore, Ms. Teresa Charles, Mr. Bryan Dickinson, Ms. Rita Capitan, Mr. Michael Hyatt, Ms. Rachel Rodriguez, and Ms. Teri Cron for their contributions to the success Crownpoint High School over the course of this past year. Your new Principal is Mr. J.D. Reed. Mr. Reed and I have had extended discussion about the history and traditions at CHS and I have a great deal of confidence that he will be an OUTSTANDING leader for the future.
I have only one regret as I return to my home in the Great State of Texas. That regret is that I will not be here to see the success that is inevitable for the students of Crownpoint High School. I wish you Godspeed and good luck in all your future endeavors. There is no doubt that you will make your parents proud.
Will Burks, MA; MEd.
