Welcome to HHS!

Welcome to Humboldt High School!

I would like to take a moment to introduce myself as the high school principal. I taught on both the collegiate and secondary school level for 10 years before becoming an administrator in the fall of 2008. I received a Bachelor’s degree from Morehouse College, a Master’s degree in education from Union University; and an Educational Specialist degree from Freed-Hardeman University. My passion always has been and will be educating children.

I want to encourage each of our students to think of their high school career as just that, a career. Utilize this opportunity to explore your options, build upon your talents, and gain experiences that will help shape your future successes and achievements. Challenge yourself as you progress and mature through high school to choose a rigorous program of study that will communicate your standards of excellence and dedication to post-secondary institutions and prospective employers. Operate with the understanding that the standards we set for ourselves now shape the person we become.

I believe that my background as a teacher and my ongoing role as a parent enable me to understand and meet the needs of both teachers and parents, but ultimately allows me to serve the students and children of the Humboldt community. My office door is open, and I invite you to drop in anytime.

James E. Walker, Ed.S.
