Principal's Bio

Mr. Duane Case

I would like to tell you a little about myself. I am married to Stephanie Case, a third grade teacher at Pleasant Hill Elementary. Stephanie and I have been married for twenty three years and have one son, Keegan, who will be a sixth grader at DCMS. We live in Hernando and are members of Desoto Hills Baptist Church where I serve as a deacon.

I received a Bachelor’s and two Master’s degrees in education from Delta State University. While at DSU, I was a member of the baseball team and Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity.

My twenty one years of experience in education have all been in DeSoto County Schools. For twelve years I served as a teacher and head baseball coach at Hernando High School. I also served as an assistant football coach, a class sponsor, and Fellowship of Christian Athletes sponsor.

In 2006, I entered the Educational Leadership program at DSU. I served as an assistant principal at Horn Lake High School for two years before being named principal at DCMS.

It is my honor to be the principal at HHS. My top priority is the safety of our students and staff. Academic excellence is next on my list of priorities. I am very proud of the accomplishments of HHSS which include becoming an “A” school in the state of Mississippi. We will continue to strive to meet the high standards that we have set for the students, staff, and administration at HHS. I look forward to a great school year and appreciate your support.
