Principal's Message

From the desk of Mr. Newport, Principal

Mr. Josh Newport, our new Jr./Sr. High Principal, has 15 years of experience with 9 years of principal/assistant principal experience in Xenia schools.

From the desk of Mr. Cochran, Assistant Principal I was previously a high school teacher and bring seven years of diverse teaching experience. One of those experiences included Greenon and I'm excited to return in my new role as Assistant Principal.

I transitioned to administration because I want the ability to use my passion for learning and unwavering commitment to student success to influence positive change and school culture. I am motivated, goal-oriented, and dedicated. I possess the unique set of skills needed to hold high expectations and be consistent, while being an active listener and leading with compassion.
I believe effective school leadership is built on the foundation of developing and maintaining relationships with students, parents, staff members, and all additional stakeholders. This foundation is built upon transparency, consistency, communication, and presence.

My philosophy on discipline focuses on research strategies that proactively change student behavior rather than reactively punish students for their actions. I am committed to doing what is best for students while using reliable and valid data to drive my decision-making.
Overall, I strive to become a servant leader of all constituents with the goal of increasing student learning, maintaining high expectations, and developing a positive school culture that produces fine young citizens of our global world.
My vision for Greenon is to work collectively alongside all stakeholders to create the vision and mission statement this coming school year. As an administrative team, it will be our responsibility to live the vision and exemplify Greenon's core values by leading, modeling, and teaching each and every day. I can say that positive school culture, community, academic excellence, safety, inclusion, and innovation are at the forefront of my obligations.
I am excited to rejoin the Greenon family and for what the upcoming school year will bring. I also am huge on family, so you may see my wife and two boys at various events as well. Here's to a great year and Go Knights!
~Mr. Cochran
