On behalf of all the staff at Gresham High School, I want to welcome you and your student(s) to the 2022-2023 school year! I enjoyed serving the GHS community as an Assistant Principal last year and am invigorated by the energy of GHS students and families and the rich and diverse cultures each student brings through our doors everyday. I am humbled to be serving this year as the GHS Interim Principal and am optimistic about our school-family partnership moving forward.
As we embark on the journey of this upcoming school year, it is important for us to think about where we have been and where we are headed. The past few years in education have reminded us that we must continue to adapt and learn in order to best serve students and families in the Gresham community. It has brought into focus that maintaining the traditions that are good for all students, while embracing change and improvement, is critical to helping our students thrive. We have learned to more willingly give and receive patience and grace. And, most of all, we have reinvigorated ourselves with the knowledge that our students, who are our future leaders and community members, are resilient and amazing!
The GHS mission is to be a community of lifelong learners empowered by academic excellence, inquiry, and discovery, which will lead them to positively contribute and facilitate future opportunities in both the local and global society. This mission embodies who we are and who we strive to be for our students.
I am so proud to be a part of Gopher Nation! The GHS community is richly diverse and dedicated to ensuring every student feels valued and has a sense of belonging. I am excited to see our students soon and look forward to meeting and hearing from each of you throughout the coming school year!
-Erika Beddoe Whitlock (She/her/hers, Ms. Whitlock), Interim Principal
