My name is Kent Roberts and I am the new principal at Green Valley High School. I am very pleased at the opportunity to serve such a great school community. As the principal at Boulder City High School for the past three years I know very well what students are capable of when they are raised by supportive parents, nurtured by committed, passionate teachers, and given the tools to reach their potential. Green Valley High School is well known for its tremendous success in developing bright, talented, well-rounded students who excel in every way imaginable. I consider it a great honor to be joining an organization that demonstrates its "Commitment to Excellence" on a daily basis.
I have served in the field of education for over twenty years, beginning as a teacher in Arizona. During my time as a classroom teacher I have taught a wide variety of subjects and I have served as a coach or sponsor in numerous sports or activities. For the last nine years I have served as an administrator in the state of Nevada, the last three as principal of Boulder City High School. Boulder City and Green Valley have much in common. Students at both schools are extremely committed to their education and both have teachers, advisors and coaches that are willing to go the extra mile to ensure the success of the young people in their charge. Both have very supportive parents and communities and so it is no secret that both schools have garnered more than their share of accolades.
Educating a young man or woman is not a singular task. It requires the coordinated efforts of many people and careful planning. We understand that the road to success is not always a smooth one and that we must work diligently to realize our dreams. Although Green Valley has had a great track record of success we know that we must continue to improve so that our graduates have every skill they need to compete in a fast moving world. Working together we can certainly accomplish any goals that we set for ourselves.
Once again, I am very eager to begin the work of helping to push Green Valley High School to even greater heights and to maintain its traditions of excellence and high achievement. Thank you for your time and I look forward to meeting you and working with you in the coming years.
