Principal's Message

I would like to welcome everyone to the 2017 -2018 School Year. We are very excited about the upcoming school year. I am pleased to have been named principal at VHS this year. We have a great team of teachers and faculty who are dedicated to providing the best possible education for all of our students. 
 
Vidalia High School has a long standing tradition of excellence and we plan to take this tradition to new heights in the upcoming year. The mission statement at VHS is to provide all students with the skills needed to succeed in society, and we will strive diligently to meet this statement. 
 
We have a great community in Vidalia and I encourage all parents, community members, students, teachers, and stakeholders to take pride in our schools. Together we can make great things happen for our town, our schools, and most important, our kids.
