My name is Greg Hernandez and I am starting my 27th year in education. I have been the principal for Frenship Heritage Middle School since it open in 2011. Prior to taking the principal position, I served as an assistant principal at Frenship High School and served as the Early College High School principal as well. I am excited to be returning to Frenship High School to be your principal.
I graduated high school from Roscoe High. Upon graduating, I enlisted in the U.S. Army and served for three years. I attended Texas Tech University with a Bachelor's In Arts and Science in Education in 1990. I received my Master's in Education from Lubbock Christian University in 2004 and attained my superintendent certification in 2006. I have taught middle school science, high school chemistry, coached, and served as an athletic director and assistant principal for Slaton ISD.
I chose my career in education because other than my parents, my school teachers and coaches were the most influential people of my life. Many of my philosophical ideas about education were formed from many of my mentors in my youth and young career. I believe to cherish each child that walks through our doors, no two children are identical but, all are capable of learning and education is the key to provide opportunities to their future.
My wife Shanay and I have been blessed with two beautiful children who are also students of the Frenship family. My hobbies include watching almost any type of sporting event, visiting with friends, golfing, and fishing.
I look forward to being your child’s principal and will help lead FHS to continue to provide the same quality of excellence in education they have always received.
