Principal | Pickens High School
My name is Chris Wallace and I am excited about the opportunity to serve on the Board of Directors for The Joy House. I am a life-long resident of Jasper and proud to call this community my home. My wife Lynda and I support, and believe in all that this organization stands for. I serve as the Principal of Pickens High School. I have been an employee in the Pickens County School district for the last ten years and I have a true passion for education. I am convinced that this career has been a calling for me. Throughout my twelve years in education, I have been afforded the opportunity to influence the lives of young people. Though this is a huge responsibility, it is an extremely rewarding aspect of what I do on a daily basis.
My desire to positively affect the lives of young people combined with my faith has led to my belief in the principles of The Joy House. When not at work, I enjoy attending First Baptist Church Woodstock, spending time with my wife and son, woodworking and watching college football (Go Dawgs!!!…sorry Steve). I am eager to bring my experience to this organization and work alongside the other members to continue providing numerous resources to help restore families in need.
