Mr. Mahan- 11th Grade Principal


This is my 24th year in Education. The vast majority of which has been coaching wrestling and football and teaching US History. I have more recently been involved in the administration side of things (which I absolutely love).

I believe that IKE is an incredible school with potential to be one of (if not) the best High School in the State. I have truly enjoyed my time here and am looking forward to many more productive years.
