Assistant Principal

Drury PictureHello, thank you for visiting our school website. My name is Jacob Drury, and I am the assistant principal here at Northeast Lauderdale High School. I am a 2008 graduate of Grace Christian High School located in Louisville, Mississippi. I earned a B.S. in Education from Mississippi State University, and a Masters degree in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University. I began my teaching career at Armstrong Middle School in the fall of 2012. During my time at Armstrong, I taught 6th-grade Mathematics and coached middle school football. After completing my 3rd year at Armstrong in 2015, my family and I moved to Meridian, Mississippi. I began working at George Washington Carver Middle School. I taught 6th and 8th grade Mathematics and served as an academic coach during my 3 years at Carver. In 2017 I took a job at Meridian High School to become an assistant principal. The past two years I have worked alongside Mr. Herrington at MHS, and I look forward to working with him at NEHS. I am married to a wonderful mother and wife, Courtney. She is a West Lauderdale graduate, and I have 3 beautiful children, Ashtyn, 15, Aiden, 6, and Kinsley, 3.
