From the Principal

  • Dear Conway Junior High School Family,

    It is with great pleasure that I write this letter to you as the incoming principal at Conway Junior High School. I am incredibly excited to start this journey and it is truly an honor to be a part of the Conway Junior High School family and community. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to lead a school that already has a unique and special place in my heart. 

    I arrive within the Conway community as a lifelong educator. I am from Forrest City, AR and have attended the University of Central Arkansas, the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, and Harding University for my educational learning growth years. I have taught Elementary PE and coached in the Pine Bluff, Watson Chapel, and Conway Public School District. I also previously served as an assistant principal at Conway Junior High for four years and principal at Maumelle Middle School for one year. 

    In addition to my role as an educator, I am first and foremost a father and a husband. My wife Carise is the Principal at Theodore Jones Elementary and we are blessed with two beautiful girls. Our oldest daughter Zoe (6) begins 1st grade this year and our youngest daughter Aubrey (4) will continue to be the life of the party as she embarks upon Pre K-4 this fall. I am committed to being a role model to our students, just as I have been to my girls.

    I believe that learning should be fun and students are first in everything we do. We must set high expectations for learning in the most nurturing and positive environment where children can succeed. My goal is to ensure that every student is provided the highest quality of education possible. Working alongside you as our staff, parents, and community, I am confident that we can help each student achieve their very best.

    To our students, parents, and community, this year is going to be amazing. I hope that you are excited about this upcoming school year. It is going to be a fun year of learning together while also growing as a school family. I look forward to celebrating our collective success this 2022-2023 academic school year. 

    Warm Regards,

    Preston Echols
