Kris Perkins, Principal

I am excited to begin year 4 at "The Burg" and to serve the students, parents, and teachers of Lewisburg High School. I have been in DeSoto County Schools for the past 11 years and in education for 13 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 14 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

Hello Patriots!

I appreciate the opportunity to serve the Lewisburg community in the role of assistant principal. DeSoto County Schools has been a rewarding place to work for more than 20 years. Throughout my career in education, I have had the opportunity to work with students and staff at Hernando Hills Elementary, Southaven Intermediate, Hernando Middle, and Southaven Middle. As a teacher, I have experience teaching Self-Contained Special Education, Compensatory Math, Pre-Algebra, and Science. In addition to teaching, I coached volleyball, boys' basketball, and girls' basketball as a teacher before becoming an administrator.

As a student, I graduated from Central High School in Florence, Alabama. My undergraduate degree in biology was earned at the University of Mississippi. As a result of my further studies, I obtained a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Cambridge College and an Education Specialist degree in Educational Leadership-Special Education Director from Arkansas State University. Currently, I am pursuing a doctorate in Education Leadership at the University of Mississippi.

My husband and I have three children and four grandchildren. The three children are graduates of DeSoto County Schools (DCS), and their children now attend DCS. Additionally, both my daughter and daughter-in-law teach for DCS. The academic excellence of DeSoto County Schools is something we value and support as a family.

I am honored to be a Patriot. My aim as an administrator is to empower students and staff holistically to achieve even greater levels of excellence today than they achieved yesterday. Providing the finest education possible to our students and community is my goal as a member of Lewisburg High School's administrative team.

Go Patriots!

It is an honor and privilege to be able to serve as assistant principal at Lewisburg High School! I have lived in DeSoto County all my life and graduated from Hernando High School in 2006. I attended the University of Mississippi where I received my Undergraduate degree in Secondary Education – English and a Graduate degree in Curriculum and Instruction for English Education. Most recently I finished my Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Mississippi.

This will be my 10th year with the DeSoto County School District. I have had the pleasure of teaching English from grades 9th-12th and have recently spent the past two years specifically working in the 10th grade English classroom. During my time with DeSoto County Schools, I have also served as head coach for Cross-Country, Boys’ Soccer, and Track and Field. I have enjoyed working with students and athletes alike to achieve their goals in the classroom and on the athletic field.

I currently live in Hernando with my wife of five years, Caitlin Clark, who works as a high school counselor at Southaven High School. We have two boys, Carter and Cash, along with our two dogs Ryder and Fitzgerald.
