     It’s with great pride and excitement that I write this letter to introduce myself as the newly appointed principal of Surry Early College High School. I am honored to serve in this capacity while working with all stakeholders to uphold the academic integrity that the Surry Early College has sustained over the previous years. In fourteen years as a teacher and school administrator, one thing I have learned is that students don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. I value creating and maintaining positive relationships with students in order to promote their success in school, both academically and socially.

     In coordination with Surry County Schools, I embrace the opportunity to walk side by side with all students, parents, school staff, and business partners to help design dreams and grow leaders. Throughout the school year, students at Surry Early College will be offered multiple opportunities to invest in their leadership capacity both in the classroom and in the school community. I highly encourage and support a sustained effort from all parents and students to become fully ingrained in this educational journey. Through this process of mentoring and support, our students will chart their own path of success and build the capacity to be globally competitive.

     Please feel free to reach out to me this school year with any questions, concerns, or ideas. I am here to serve and look forward to working together to provide our students with  the best educational experience possible while continuing to make Surry Early College stand out above the rest!

    Spartan Pride,


    Colby Beamer
