July 03, 2012
ALTON — The Prospect Mountain High School Board announces the appointment of Robert L. Cullison, Jr., as the next superintendent after a two-month search process.

Cullison is currently the principal of the Gateway School and Crossroads Middle School in Westminster, Md., a position he has held since 1998. In his 37 years of experience, he has been assistant principal at the Milford Mill Academy and Overlea High School, program director at the Community Career Center, cooperative education teacher-coordinator at Lansdowne High School, and teacher, all in the Baltimore County, Md. school district.

"I believe the highest calling an individual may have is to prepare our next generation for their future," Cullison commented. I believe that teachers hold the fate of their communities and our country in their hands, and that this is an awesome responsibility we accept by becoming educators."

He added that he is delighted to have the opportunity to work with the students, families, teachers and staff of Prospect Mountain High School, and is looking forward to becoming established in the community and as a resident of New Hampshire.

Cullison has worked in a wide-variety of school settings and served in numerous leadership roles, both within two large school systems and at the state level in Maryland. He has participated as a member of various regional, system and statewide committees and led initiatives at those levels as well. Having served as a school-based administrator for the past 23 years and spending more than a decade in the classroom, he is moving to New Hampshire to begin this next phase of his career.

PMHS Board Chair, Krista Argiropolis stated, "The board welcomes Mr. Cullison to our district and looks forward to working with him. He comes to us with excellent recommendations and a track record of success. We feel that his experience, skills and visionary approach will greatly benefit our students, teachers and staff."
