Superintendent's Message
Dr. Glenn Faircloth, Superintendent

As your superintendent, I applaud the JVS graduates of 2017. I am excited about their futures, and what the next chapters of their lives will bring. Our students are living proof that hard work does pay off! Because of their hard work, and lessons learned, each one of them will be major contributors to their communities, to the regional economy, and even the world. My advice to them? First, remain life-long learners. Don’t just stop at graduation. Be a lamp of knowledge. Be sure to keep your light going and glowing with ongoing valuable information. Also, be ready to challenge the status quo. One of my greatest lessons was to always hold on to my core beliefs and values. We all have within us those core beliefs, which consists of what our parents have taught us, and what our experiences have shown us. It is important that our graduates always trust their inner voice, their spirit within, when making decisions. It will help guide them. It has certainly helped me throughout my journey called life.
