Greetings from Dr. Brunson,

A message from our principal, Dr. Brunson:

Hello to our NCTS families and community!

In 2008, I started my administrative career as the assistant principal here at the Ficquett campus.  When NCTS opened at this campus in 2011, many of my staff members and I opened Fairview Elementary, where I began as assistant principal, followed by these recent 5 years as principal.  Returning to this campus in the role of NCTS principal is a big adventure!  

Many of the NCTS families and I have worked together and known each other during our lives in Covington, and some of you are my former classmates from when we attended school as students at East Newton, Sharp Middle, and Newton County High School!   

Completing my EdD from Liberty University in 2015 was one of the greatest moments of my career.  Joining NCTS as principal is also among those greatest moments.   

My leadership at NCTS will continue to have the same foundations as my work at Fairview, so I ask you to help NCTS always be a place where:

We help each other when we struggle.
We support each other in all our efforts.
We reflect on our work so that we may improve.
We take pride in our individual accomplishments without comparing ourselves to others.
We work hard now so that we will receive the benefits of our efforts later.
We do not give up.
We do good to all people.

My twenty-sixth year in education begins as my FIRST year with you!  I hope you'll share my optimism for a safe, successful, and satisfying new school year ahead!

Dr. Brunson
