SHS recognizes Potts

SHS Principal Bruce Potts addresses the crowd at a reception held in his honor on Friday.


Teachers and staff of Sonoraville High School honored longtime principal Bruce Potts on Friday, Feb. 16 with a reception to mark his resignation from the school.

"You guys have rubbed off on me and made me a better person," Potts told those gathered. "And I am a forever grateful. Our paths will continue to intertwine with each other, I promise you that. No matter where the next steps take me, the roots are always going to take me back to here and what has happened in our work lives together. More than anything, work has become family for us, and for that I will be forever grateful."

After more than 13 years of service as the lead administrator at SHS, Potts resigned earlier this month from his position in a quest to further his career and find a superintendent position.
