Welcoming Welsh

Mr.Welsh has taken his time in adjusting to the new school. “I hope to have a great year and I hope that every student is successful this year and does the right things and makes the right choices,” Mr.Welsh said.

The start of a new school year is characterized by new experiences and brand-new faces in the halls. Among those in the crowd, Mr. Kevin Welsh (FAC) is one to note. Mr.Welsh has just been hired as the new Assistant Principal for the class of 2024 and will play a prominent role in the upcoming school year in terms of graduation. This will be his first year in an AP position, but he carries a plethora of experience with him as he moves away from his past teaching job at River Ridge High School.

I’ve been making the running joke since I’ve come from River Ridge that it’s good to be on the winning side… I do like going to football games and watching people win,” Mr. Welsh said. “I’m so used to the way that one school operates, and learning how another school operates is a challenge. But if that is the least of my worries, I’ll be okay.”

Besides transitioning schools, he also has strong ambitions and numerous goals for his first year as a Mustang.

“I would like to see seniors not have a lot of referrals. But graduation is the big thing, so making sure the 512 students that are currently in the graduating class will make it- in a perfect world,” Mr.Welsh said.

This new opportunity will be a way for him to branch off and further his experience in the realm of education. Although, for Mr. Welsh, his life outside of school is just as memorable; with four children of his own, he describes himself as quite a family man.

“I was a Marine for 18 years before I came into education. So I’m very patriotic and I have a love for our country.” Mr.Welsh said. “I got into education because I wanted to see kids grasp onto things that will better our country and society.”

Located in room 107, make sure to stop by and give Mr.Welsh a warm welcome.
