Dear Quincy High School Family,
I am delighted to have been selected as the new Principal of Quincy High School. Quincy High School has a reputation of being a wonderful place of learning with terrific students and an outstanding staff. It is my privilege to start the 2017-2018 school year with you.
As a first generation college graduate, I am very proud to hold an earned doctorate in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University, an Educational Specialist degree from Point Loma Nazarene University, a Masters of Education in Administration and Supervision from the University of North Florida, and a Bachelors of Music from the University of Nebraska/Omaha. I have two adult sons: Dr. Kristofor Belew Nyquist, my youngest, who completed his Ph.D. in Biophysics at CAL/Berkeley and is a senior scientist in Menlo Park, California, and Brian Belew Nyquist, my eldest, who is pursuing a second degree in chemical engineering at WSU after 3 years in the Peace Corps in Paraguay. Brian recently married Ninfa Anahida Roa Martinez of Paraguay.
I am eager and excited to meet our students, our staff, and our families. As the new school year rapidly approaches, I look forward to meeting you and engaging in conversations where I can listen to your suggestions and ideas to help continue to make Quincy High School an outstanding place for our students.
Enjoy these last days of summer with your families and please mark our Open House Event on August 28th, from 5:00-6:30 pm on your calendar! I look forward to meeting you in the very near future as we begin the 2017-2018 school year.
