I was born and raised in Tecumseh, Oklahoma and am also a proud 1991 graduate of Tecumseh High School.  I received my Associates degree from Seminole Junior College and Bachelor’s degree from East Central University, where I also received a Master’s Degree.  I started my educational career in 1997 in Maud Public Schools where I served for six years as both a classroom teacher and coach.  I then moved on to McLoud Public Schools where I served for the next seven years as both a classroom teacher and coach as well.  I started my administrative career at Sulphur Public Schools where I served as the Early Childhood Principal for one year.  My next stop was in Crooked Oak Public Schools where I served for three years as the Middle School Principal and District Athletic Director. For the past two years I have served as Superintendent of White Rock Public School.  I was recently honored as the OASA (Oklahoma Association of School Administrators) District 8 Superintendent of the Year Award as well.

I have been married to my beautiful wife Jamie for the past 16 years.  We have been blessed with two wonderful kids, Dax which is 12 and Bree which is 10.  I also have two step children and 3 grandchildren: our son Beau Guinn, grandson Gunner Guinn, our daughter Megan Williams, grandson Jackson Williams, and granddaughter JuliAnn Williams. We are very active in our church where my wife serves over the Children’s Ministries and I serve as a Deacon and Adult I Sunday School teacher.

I am extremely honored and blessed to have the opportunity to serve and lead such a tremendous school district as Snyder Public Schools.  I look forward to building relationships and meeting all the great people of Snyder school and the surrounding communities.
