• As Principal of Effingham County Middle School, I’d like to welcome you to our website.  We hope that it allows to you access any information that you may need.  At ECMS, our motto is to Educate, Challenge, Motivate, and help every student Succeed!  We are committed to developing students into life-long learners.  We are eager and willing to help each student grow both socially and academically.  We believe that EVERY child at ECMS can succeed with the proper guidance and support.  Working as a team, the faculty and staff will make every effort to provide the best learning experience possible for your child.  

    I encourage each student to become involved in a club, musical program, or an athletic team.  You can meet new friends, establish relationships with the teachers who coordinate the programs, and become part of the ECMS culture.  Being involved will enhance your experience in middle school, and your contribution to the organizations can have an impact on the Panthers of the future.  

    I was a Panther from 1983-1985, and this school holds a special place in my heart.  I give you my word that I will put in every ounce of effort possible to make our school a great place to be.  Please feel free to contact me at anytime.
