Kris Perkins, Principal

I am excited to join "The Burg" and to serve the students, parents, and teachers of Lewisburg High School. I have been in DeSoto County Schools for the past 9 years and in education for 11 years. I graduated from Harding University with my Bachelor's Degree in Music Education and received my Master's degree from Arkansas State University in Educational Leadership. I also currently serve in the Arkansas Army National Guard. I have been married to my wife Jennica for 11 years and have two sons, Jackson and Jordan.

It is my honor to serve as Principal at Lewisburg High School. It will be my goal to create a safe and nurturing learning environment for all students to reach their individual potential. Developing and continuing the concept of "Patriot Pride" is vital to our identity as a school community and will be achieved through high expectations for students both behaviorally and academically. I am fully prepared to embrace my role in the "Patriot" family and will strive to provide the highest level of leadership. I look forward to a great school year!




Regina Ross, Assistant Principal

Hello students, parents, family and friends.

Being a life-long DeSoto County resident I am proud to work and give back to my community.   My parents chose Hernando as their home so I attended grades K-12 in Hernando.   My husband and I believe in DeSoto County so much that we have chosen to raise our children here as well.

After graduating from Hernando High School in 1996, I obtained my Bachelor of Business from the University of Mississippi.  Unhappy in the business world, I  decided to pursue my dream of being an educator.  After returning to school, I began teaching at Olive Branch High School in 2002. Being certified to teach Business, Social Studies, and Math I taught a plethora of courses during my 10 years in the classroom.  I obtained my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Ole Miss in 2006.  After our second child, I decided to return to school to obtain a Masters in Educational Leadership, which has given me the great opportunity to work at the best high school in the state of Mississippi, Lewisburg High!

I now proudly serve as your Assistant Principal at Lewisburg High School where I hope to continue to have a positive impact on student's academic achievements.

Go Patriots!

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 a 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 a 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 the University of Mississippi, my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership at Cambridge College, an 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.
