Mr. Jacob Scandrett, Principal
Hello! Welcome to Murray County Central High School. As the new principal of our secondary school, I am honored to be joining a district with such a rich history and reputation of excellence in academics, the arts, athletics and activities. This tradition of excellence speaks volumes to the commitment of our community to support the students and staff of Murray County Central. As I attended the graduation proceedings this year, I was struck by the sense of pride our community has for its schools. The priority of promoting student academic excellence while teaching the values and character traits that will help prepare our students for life after high school was apparent. I am proud that I will be serving in such a district.
As an educator, I firmly believe it is the relationships we develop that make the biggest impact in the lives of our students, staff, parents and community. These relationships help to motivate and inspire individuals to achieve their highest potential. It is also in the context of these relationships that we teach the values of respect, responsibility, and integrity that will guide our students to use their knowledge wisely as productive, contributing citizens.
Having started my teaching career in Tracy, MN, and with my wife growing up in Cottonwood, coming back to southwest Minnesota feels like coming home. I am excited to get back to the area and to get to know the students, staff and families of Murray County Central!
