Principal's Biography

I am a 1985 graduate of Hartselle High School.  I jokingly add that from that point it only took 10 years to get my Bachelor’s degree.  During that 10 years though I obtained an Associates’ Degree, served four years on active duty in the Navy, got married and started a family.  I graduated from Athens State University in 1997 with a Bachelor’s in Mathematics Education.  I furthered my education at UNA and obtained a Master’s in Education Administration and completed the Education Specialists degree in Instructional Leadership in 2009.

My civilian career experience has always pointed me to service.  Prior to entering the education field, I served for a few years as a correctional officer at the Limestone Correctional Facility.  I began my teaching career at East Lawrence High school in 1997 where I became an “accidental coach”.  I continued coaching and teaching at West Morgan High school in 2002.  While my passion is teaching Mathematics I learned to love coaching as well.  I was fortunate enough to have winning records in every sport I coached which includes football, baseball, basketball, track, golf, and soccer.  I am probably most proud as a coach in the successful soccer program we built at West Morgan.  We started the program in 2005 and by 2009 we were competing in the Final Four.  I began my administrative career in 2011 at Challenger Middle School as an assistant principal.  Following a brief assignment at the Director of Transition for Huntsville City Schools, I became the principal at Chapman P-8 in 2012. 

My military experience took me in the direction of education as well.  I served in the Naval Expeditionary Logistics Support Force for the last fourteen years of my reserve career, which ended in 2009.  During my time with NAVELSG, I had the opportunity to serve as the Battalion Training Chief and Operations Chief and deployed several times in support of Operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom. 

I am married to Labeth Long Bryant a Danville graduate.  Labeth has been a teacher at West Morgan Elementary for over 20 years.  We have two children, Will, who is a junior at Athens State majoring in Secondary Special Education prior to attending seminary, and Mary Beth, a junior at West Morgan High who cheers and plays soccer.  The entire Bryant family are active members at Trinity Baptist Church. 

My vision for Ardmore High School is for every student to have the opportunity to become the best person possible while participating in an instructional program that is both rigorous and engaging.  I am going to promote high standards of excellence in and outside the classroom.  I want to increase the number of students obtaining 3’s or 4’s on Advanced Placement tests.  Increase the number of students obtaining certifications in career technical fields.  I want to see an active PTO and Community Action Partnerships.  I want to see increased levels of student leadership opportunities.  Most important I want Ardmore High to lead the district in producing college and career ready graduates that are ready to solve complex problems in an increasingly global economy.
