Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Sam Callis

My name is Sam Callis and I am entering my 26th year in education.  I spent 20 years as a classroom teacher, the last 2 of which were here at Waynesville High School.  Since then I have been in administration.  I served as Assistant Principal at Cuba High School for 2 years before moving over to be Principal.  I left Cuba to become Principal at Richland High School. 

My wife, Megan. has been a teacher in Waynesville since 2016 and my son, Weston, attends East Elementary.  I am excited to begin my 2nd year as Director of the Waynesville Career Center.  Career and Tech Education gives so many students an opportunity outside of the Traditional Classroom.  The instructors here at WCC, take tremendous pride in their work.  Each instructor prepares their students with an opportunity to begin a career, enter college or begin military service with a fundamental, hands-on educational experience.  I encourage you to ask any former or current WCC student about their experience at the Career Center.  Our students do a great job of telling our story.
