Occupation: Principal 

 

Bio: Jerome Huff became Roswell High School's eighth principal since it opened 65 years ago.

Mr. Huff was formerly principal at Elkins Pointe Middle School, principal of Roswell North Elementary School for six years, and an assistant principal at Roswell High School for four years.

He considers himself “a positive change agent” and a “servant leader,” meaning he focuses on cultivating students’ and staff members’ individual strengths and talents to guide his leadership.

While at Roswell North Elementary, Huff led the school to receive numerous state and national honors, including the Platinum Award for greatest test gains from the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement and a “Closing the Achievement Gap” recognition from the Standards and Poor’s Corp. In 2009, he was a front-runner for the Georgia PTA’s Principal of the Year award and helped Roswell North start a foundation, which raised $70,000 in its first year.

Huff graduated from Georgia Southern University, where he holds a bachelor’s degree in education and a master’s degree in school administration and supervision.
