Mr. Jacob Lail
I am beyond excited to begin this school year! It is truly an honor to lead West Alexander Middle School. This school has a tradition of excellence and I look forward to continuing that tradition. I also look forward to building relationships with students, parents, teachers, and community partners. Together we will challenge all students to achieve high levels of success.
I have served as the assistant principal at East Alexander Middle School and most recently as an assistant principal at Alexander Central High School. I have a master's degree in Educational Leadership from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. My bachelor's degree is in History, Secondary Education from Appalachian State University. Before school administration I taught Advanced Placement (AP) United States History at Alexander Central and social studies at the middle and high school levels. I enjoy being outdoors and traveling with my wife. My wife and I currently live in the Bethlehem Community.
