Holgate Local Schools

Tiger Pride

Middle School/High School Principal
Brian Hughes

I am very excited to join the excellent staff at Holgate Local Schools as your Middle and High School Principal! It is truly an honor to become part of a community which has already given me such a warm welcome. I look forward to beginning a wonderful school year as a Tiger in the weeks ahead!

I have lived and worked in Northwest Ohio all of my adult life. I just completed my tenth year in education, and spent several years coaching before becoming a teacher. In 2004, I graduated from the University of Toledo with a Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I attained my teaching license in 2008 with a Master’s degree from Grand Canyon University. In 2015, I completed my Educational Specialist degree in School Administration from Bowling Green State University. Most recently, I completed my superintendent’s licensure from Ashland University. Professionally, I was a middle school teacher for 4 years, a teacher at the high school level for 3 years, and spent the last 3 years as the 7-12 Assistant Principal/Athletic Director at North Central Local Schools. I am currently making the move closer to Holgate with my wife, Andrea, and 1-year old daughter, Emersyn. Outside of school, I enjoy golfing, running, cheering on the Ohio State Buckeyes and spending time with friends and family.

I look forward to meeting you all and getting to know each of our students and families over the coming weeks. Go Tigers!!!
