I am humbled, honored, and blessed to serve as the Principal of Lamesa Middle School! This will be my 1st year as the Principal and I am serving in my 14th year of education, all of which have been in Lamesa. I have loved every year in this great community! I am married to my beautiful wife, Samantha Arguijo, who is the K-12 Math Coordinator. I have two amazing children that have prospered in our schools here in Lamesa. Ethan is a 7th grader and Jackson will be graduating this year! We at Lamesa Middle School know that this time can be a difficult transitional phase for students, and we will remain committed to supporting the success of our students during this transition. As educators we will continue to develop, establish and promote a growth mindset, as it presents itself as a gift to assist our students (and ourselves) in developing a practical optimistic mindset that help our students learn successfully. We will never ask an individual to be better than another, but we will never stop asking that an individual to be the best that they can be. Our staff is thankful for the opportunity to serve your students and will remain committed to developing a mindset that will persevere through any obstacles for their ultimate success!
