LaWanda Wallace, Assistant Principal
I am a native Alabamian and have become a proud 30-year resident of Hernando, Mississippi. Passionately, I desire to make our community better one child at a time. With that in mind I began my career with DeSoto County Schools as receptionist and attendance clerk at Hernando Middle School in 1997 while completing my biology degree and teacher certification. After receiving certification, I quickly began my teaching career at Hernando Middle School. In addition to teaching, I served as head volleyball and boys’ and girls’ basketball coach for 10 years. My desire for educational leadership in administration served as platform for my opportune nine-year journey as a DCS assistant principal in the following schools, Southaven Intermediate School, Southaven Middle School, Hernando Hills Elementary School and presently Lewisburg High School. I received my bachelor’s degree in Biology at University of Mississippi, Master’s degree in Educational Leadership at Cambridge College, and Educational Specialist degree in Educational Leadership-Special Education Director at Arkansas State University. I am married to Minister-Brother Terry D. Wallace Sr. we have three children Terry, Justin, and Audreauna all Hernando High School graduates, daughter-in -law Shirell Wallace Olive Branch High School graduate and two grandchildren Zanterryion (Hernando Schools student) and Genesis. Our family is generationally DeSoto County Schools vested-#TeamDCS. As a family we diligently serve and worship at West Oak Grove Church of Christ in Hernando.
I am truly grateful for the opportunity and excitedly look forward to serving with the Lewisburg Administrative Team as we serve the students, teachers, and parents of the Lewisburg community.
