Erik Huber looks forward to Aug. 9th when he will greet Bullitt Central High School students as their new principal.
“I am honored and excited to be a part of Cougar Nation,” he said. “I welcome the opportunity to serve the Bullitt Central learning and teaching community and look forward to working with a dynamic staff, dedicated parents and involved community members. Most of all, I look forward to working with our students and continuing the outstanding work at Bullitt Central High School. My wife, Danielle, my kids (Kylie and Landon) and I feel truly blessed to be a part of such an amazing community.”
Huber departs Bullitt East High School after working three years as an assistant principal.
“Charger Nation instantly made me feel like I had been a part of the Charger family my entire life,” he said. “Words will never be able to express how much that meant, and still means, to me. Each and every day they forced me to grow and pushed me to be the very best version of myself. It has been one of the greatest pleasures of my life to serve alongside, laugh with, cry with, and most of all positively impact lives with everyone at Bullitt East”
His immediate goal at Bullitt Central is to acclimate himself to the tradition at BC and get to know the staff that currently serves BC.
“I want to learn the origins of all that passion I hear when people say ‘We are BC!”
Long term goals include developing a positive culture where parents want to send their children, students want to learn, teachers want to teach, and employees want to work.
“I believe we can build this kind of culture if we are committed to forming impactful relationships where everyone we encounter feels valued and encouraged,” he said. “I would love to see us accomplish these goals and hope to see BC as the standard for excellence in academics, athletics, and service in Bullitt County and the state.”
Huber earned Administrative Leadership/Principal Certification in 2014 from Spalding University following a Masters of Arts in Teaching from the University of Louisville in 2002 and Bachelors of Science in Biology from Eastern Kentucky University in 2000.
His first job was as a Veterinary Technician for St. John’s Pet Care in Louisville.
“Prior to joining the BCHS family, I have served in many teaching and educational leadership roles over the past 16 years. I began my teaching career at South Oldham High School where I taught Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy, Forensic Science, and several other courses. During my time at South I served as a Co-leader of the Science Department, a member of the SBDM Council, assistant baseball coach, head softball coach, academic team coach, Spirit Club Sponsor, and numerous other activities,” he said.
Huber believes each of these roles helped shape him into the person he is today.
“My many diverse educational and life experiences allow me to have a greater understanding of how our school must function as a whole, but also deepened my awareness that we must provide a multitude of opportunities for growth and success if we are to reach all students,” he said.
Huber enjoys spending time with his family and friends, watching and playing all sports (especially baseball), collecting sports cards and memorabilia and animals.
