Assistant Principal, Mr. Proffitt
I have served students, teachers, parents, and communities for over 32 years. I was a music/ band director for 17 years in Kentucky, and served as school and district administrator for 15 years as assistant principal, Chief Academic Officer, Director of Pupil Personnel, and Superintendent. After retirement, I worked for Western Kentucky University, and the past four years in China. I am so excited to be here in Danville district 118 with the wonderful staff and students of North Ridge Middle School. I have a son, daughter, a new grandson, and I enjoy hiking, walking, and having fun with friends. Together, it will be a fantastic year!
