Administration is the key to having successful students. They keep the students in line and focused. This year our school has added a new administrator to our mountain, Mr. Mathew Epps. Mr. Epps is greatly welcomed here. I sat down with Mr. Epps and here is what he had to say.

What is your prior experience before coming to OMHS? “I previously taught 5th grade at Rutledge Middle School and served as an Assistant Principal at Midfield High School”.

How are you liking Oak Mountain so far? “I love Oak Mountain. I really love the students and the school spirit and how task oriented they are. They are definitely future leaders and they try their best. It is very impressive.”

What is different from your previous school and OMHS? “The culture is different. I credit the students, teachers, and faculty. My last school was a 3-A school which only had around 300 students compared to Oak Mountain which has a little over 1500 students. Also, the support from the teachers and Mrs. Jackson, Dr. Sayers, Mr. Dudley, and Ms. Barrett are beneficial to my transition.”

What duties do you have as Assistant Principal? “I am over the 11th grade and disciplining the students. Also attendance, responsibility over custodians, and making all students successful.”

Thank you to Mr. Epps for sitting down and talking with me. We all hope you continue to adjust well to OMHS. It is always great to have new staff and faculty members added to our school!
