Douglas R. Welch High School
I am very excited to be back here at DRWHS for my third year as principal. I’ve had more fun and have learned more about education in the last two years than I have in the previous ten combined. Our students, our staff, and our community have all taught me so much, and hopefully we have been able to give back to them in one way or another.
I am pleased to announce that all of our staff are returning again this year, and that their craft of teaching continues to get stronger and stronger. I have never seen a group of teachers more dedicated to the success of all our DRWHS Warriors, and I look forward to watching them grow as you learn from them and each other.
I am also pleased to announce that Mrs. Teri Ruthruff will be joining us for two classes per day teaching art! It’s been quite some time since DRWHS has been able to offer a traditional art class, so this will most certainly be a point of pride for us. When you see her, please welcome Mrs. Ruthruff to our DRWHS family.
There are three simple steps to being successful here:
1. Show up pretty much every day for the entire day.
2. Have a decent attitude.
3. Do a decent amount of work.
If you follow those three simple steps, success will be yours, and you will find yourself walking across that graduation stage before you know it!
As always, mine is an open door, and you are more than welcome to come say hi and visit! Best of luck to you this year, and please don’t hesitate to let me know how I can help you achieve your goals.
Please call 616 -527-3530 for enrollment opportunities and more information.
