Michael "Chip" Horton - Principal

Mr. HortonGreetings!

I am Michael "Chip" Horton, Jr., and I am excited to be returning home as the new Principal of Westside High School!

I am a native of Griffin, GA and a graduate of the University of West Georgia. I have been married to my lovely wife, Shondonette for 14 years, and we share the pleasure of raising three amazing sons here in Bibb County.

As a teacher at Westside, I co-taught in all subject areas and coached football and track from 2009 to 2015, then had the pleasure of serving as Assistant Principal of Rutland High School from 2015 to 2018. My heart continues to bleed Garnet and Gold, and I couldn't be more honored and humbled to be at the helm of this fine institution!

As we embark upon this next leg of the Westside High School journey, I am committed to a partnership with every student, every teacher, and every parent, to develop young adults who are prepared to thrive in this 21stcentury society. Additionally, I expect that we all will hold each other accountable for the success of our children.

Together, we can make amazing things happen. Let's Chip Away at it everyday!

Your Partner in Success,

Michael "Chip" Horton, Jr.
