Principal at Wicksburg School
My name is Cheryl Smith. I am married to Evan “Chip” Smith, a photographer and my rock. We are extremely proud parents of two children, both graduates of Wicksburg High School. Our daughter, Amanda, graduated from (my alma mater) Troy University and teaches Broadcast Journalism at the Dothan Technology Center. Our son, Evan, graduated from University of Alabama (Roll Tide) with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and a Juris Doctorate from the Cumberland School of Law, Samford University. He is currently employed with a law firm in Albany, Georgia.
I obtained my teaching certification in elementary education from Troy University. I hold a Master’s and an Educational Specialist’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Troy University Dothan. After teaching elementary students for eight years in Florida Public Schools, my family and I moved back to Alabama. I have now served in Houston County Schools for twenty years, six of them in elementary classrooms, six years as assistant principal at Wicksburg, and now serving my ninth year as Wicksburg High School Principal.
Wicksburg School serves students in grades Pre-K through 12th Grade. We have a student population of almost one thousand. It is a challenging, time-consuming job, but I love all my children. I am excited about this school year and will continue to bring the highest level of tradition and pride to our school.
Together, we can make every year a positive learning experience for our children.
