Dr. Teague Burchfield was chosen as the Rankin County School District (RCSD) 2021 Secondary Administrator of the Year. He is currently in his fourth year as principal at Pelahatchie High School (PHS).
RCSD is the third largest school district in Mississippi with 19,500 students in 28 schools. The district has an A rating. Dr. Burchfield received Administrator of the Month twice previous to this honor.
"I am obviously thrilled to receive the honor," said Burchfield. "The award is certainly a reflection of what our faculty, staff, and students do on a daily basis here at Pelahatchie High School. I couldn't be more proud of them and their efforts!"
"There is still work to do as the work is never finished. Our focus now is on continual improvements on our benchmarks and ACT as well as our seniors and their pursuit towards graduation."
