Principal's Message

 
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at W.H. Ford High School. We are excited to begin our school year, and eagerly await a fantastic year that will unfold before our eyes. Here at FHS, we are so proud to offer a myriad of opportunities for students while they are with us on their educational journey.  From academic offerings, fine arts, athletics, and a wide-ranging offering of career and technical educational offerings, we feel that there is an avenue for our students and community to be connected.  As the weeks unfold, many of these activities will be on display, and your student is welcomed to become a part of Panther Nation in a multitude of ways. 
 
We here at FHS are always here to help in anyway possible.  Please keep up with our website, Remind, and social media outlets for any updated information.   
 
For those of you who are new to the Campus or District, a little background about me.  I am a proud 1998 graduate of Ford High School.  After graduation, I went on to Texas A&M-Commerce where I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Health.  For the last 18 years, I have been in educational roles ranging from classroom teacher, to Athletic Director, campus administration, and am now the proud Principal of a fantastic campus.  During that journey, I also obtained my Masters of Education from Lamar University, and I am currently working on a Doctorate through Texas Tech University.  My wife, who is a Biology teacher and Head Softball/Cross Country coach, have four children who keep us occupied.  We are a proud Panther family!!. 
 
If at any time you have questions regarding F.H.S. please reach out to me through email: jason.wallen@quinlanisd.net, or by phone at 903-356-1600.  
 
Thank You
Jason Wallen M.Ed.
