The FHS Faculty and Staff are eager to return to work this fall in order to provide you with the most exciting experiences to further you along your educational journey.

Our end goal is to provide a learning experience that will ready you for the 21st century world that awaits you, and the great news is...we will continue to evolve to meet your needs.  
Quinlan ISD is a fantastic district, and one that I have been able to call home for a large majority of my life.  As a 1998 graduate of Ford High School, I was able to utilize the skillset that was provided to me through my education here to attend Texas A&M University-Commerce, where I graduated in 2002, and started my career in education. During this time, I have been a classroom teacher, coach, Athletic Director, assistant principal, and now I have the honor of being the campus principal at the school where I graduated.  Along this journey I was fortunate enough to earn my Masters in Education Degree through Lamar University, and I am currently working on my Doctorate through Texas Tech!!! My wife Stacey is a Biology teacher and coach here at FHS, and together we have four children: Keely (Attending Ranger College to play volleyball) Payton 14, Colbie 14, and Mason 13. This will be my 7th year back at FHS, and I am so honored to work with you during your time here. 
If at any time you have questions regarding F.H.S. please reach out to me through email: [email protected], or by phone at 903-356-1600.  
Thank You
