Welcome to Jefferson High school.  My name is Jerry Brannen and I am beginning my 3rd year as the principal of JHS.  I am very excited to begin a new year in serving the community of Jefferson.  As the leader of JHS, I am looking forward to what the 2023-2024 school year will bring and the great things that are going to happen for our students and staff.  

I am beginning my 30th year in education in which I have served as a teacher, coach, bus driver, and administrator.  I chose the field of education because it is my belief that every student deserves the best education that can be afforded to them and  to help students realize and achieve their goals.

The staff and administration of JHS will provide our students with the best education possible in order to meet their educational needs.  The education that students receive at JHS will enable them to exit high school and be successful in whatever endeavor they choose.  We want our students to become successful, productive citizens who will represent JHS and the community with pride and integrity.  I look forward to meeting and working with all school and community stakeholders to foster lasting partnerships that will enable the best teaching and learning environment for our students.

Let’s make this school year the best one yet.
