I am excited to join Center Hill High School and serve the students, parents and staff. My career began after graduating from the University of Memphis and working with churches and non-profits before beginning my career in education. I served as a teacher at Shelby County Career and Technical Center (AL), Horn Lake High and most recently Southaven High School as an Assistant Principal. I have a deep commitment to empowering the next generation to develop a commitment to lifelong learning.
​Sincerely,
Alan Dupree
