Principal's Message

  • Travis Sturgill 

    Welcome to Alleghany High School. It is an honor and a privilege for me to serve as principal. I was born and raised in Alleghany County, and I have lived in the county for over forty-five years. I have previously been a teacher at AHS for nearly twenty years, and I am excited to return as principal. 

    Education provides the foundation for the growth and development of our children. We have a unique responsibility to educate and inspire every child that enters Alleghany High School. Our students today will be the leaders of tomorrow.

    “At Alleghany High School, we are proud of the programs and achievements that our school community has undertaken. At the very heart of our success is a talented and hard-working faculty that provides outstanding learning opportunities on a daily basis. Our goal is to provide a rigorous curriculum that helps our students achieve their maximum potential as they finish their high school career and transition to adulthood.” This vision statement represents our core values and our commitment to bring our best effort every day. Our culture of high expectations will provide the opportunity for students to be empowered, successful, self-directed learners.

    As always, my door is open to students, staff, parents/guardians, and members of the community at all times. This is a special place, and I am proud to be a part of the family.  I look forward to a great year together here at Alleghany High School.
