Eric Hines, the interim principal from last year, became Page High School’s new, full time principal for the 2017-2018 school year. Mr. Hines is a father, grandfather, educator, hiker, biker, coffee and organic food lover, pastor, golfer, runner, and he enjoys yoga. His experience and activity in the community are two things that Page High School valued when searching for a replacement for Dr. Fasion.

Why did you get involved in education?

“I did not want to get involved in education. My mom, dad, and sister were educators but I did not think it was for me. I saw what educators went through and I did not think they were paid any money. My mom always told me that teaching was in my blood but I would just tell her it probably is but I am not going to teach. I went to school at NCCU and majored in computer and information systems. After college, I had a choice to play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or sign a recording contract for music and I had this crazy love for music so I chose music. After my contract ended I was tired of the roller coaster with the music industry so I said let me use my diploma. I got offered a teaching job at Rockingham County High School teaching law enforcement and coaching the J.V basketball team and an assistant coach for the football team. As soon I got into education I fell in love.”

What is your plan for the future of Page High School?

“When I first walked through the doors of Page I saw signs that said, “Strive for Excellence.” My Mother always told me to strive for excellence so this is one of my goals for Page. I want to strive for excellence in every area and combine character and academics.”

What skills do you have to offer Page?

“I have one skill and that’s the ability to build relationships. I take time to build relationships with students outside of school.”

How long do you plan to stay at Page?

“As long as Guilford County lets me and as long as my health allows me. My goal is to see the 2017-2018 Freshman class graduate.”
