About Me

My name is Lorne Scott Smith but all those who know me call me Scott.  I am the 7-12 principal at Western Yell County High School in Havana, AR.  I received my undergraduate degree from Western Kentucky University and a masters degree in educational leadership from Arkansas State University.  I have been a high school principal for 7 years and an educator for a total of 20.  Education of young people is a great passion in my life!  Particularly education of young people in rural schools which seem to be a forgotten entity in the current educational landscape.  I hope to share that passion with others while learning from them as well. I have been married to the same beautiful wife for almost 30 years and have two grown children, Aaron and Megan.  Additionally I became a grandparent in January of 2016, her name is Lucy Jo.
