Chris Richie

The 2010-2011 school year was my first year to serve as Principal at Lassiter High School. After graduating from Madison Ridgeland High School in Madison, Mississippi, I attended the University of Southern Mississippi. I began my professional career as a social studies teacher in Jackson, Mississippi. I taught and coached baseball and basketball in Laurel, Mississippi before moving to Atlanta. I worked as both a teacher and assistant principal at Pope High School in 2000 and then moved to Kell High School in 2005 as an assistant principal. In 2006 I served as principal of Ashworth Middle School in Gordon County. In 2007 I was named principal of McCleskey Middle School where I was honored to serve in that capacity for three years. I was named principal of Lassiter High School in May 2010. In 2004 I received my PhD in Educational Leadership from The University of Southern Mississippi.

My wife Mandee serves as the principal at Brumby Elementary School. We have two daughters: Rachel, a graduate of Lassiter and UGA; and Mary Kathryn, a senior this year.
