Welcome to HEMMS!
I am so excited and honored to serve as your principal. Originally, I am from Ohio and this is my 16th year in Beaufort County. I have worked as a teacher at HE McCracken and Bluffton High School, an assistant principal at HE McCracken and May River High School, and now I am back (for the third time) at McCracken as the principal. As a leader, I value all students, parents, and teachers, as well as the opportunity to get to know and understand their needs. I seek to make connection with students by giving them opportunities to give feedback and I believe in opening the lines of communication with parents and faculty.  I could not be more excited about the opportunities and possibilities this year and I invited you to come in and see all of the wonderful things we are doing at HEMMS.

Thank you for your support!
Mrs. Skirtich
