Principal's Message

It is with eagerness and excitement that I introduce myself to you as the new principal of East Central High School and welcome you and your student(s) to the next exciting chapter in the Sunman Dearborn School system. As many of you are already aware, East Central High School has an outstanding reputation among area high schools and across the state, providing students with a wide range of college preparatory curriculum through Indiana University, Vincennes University, and Ivy Tech as well as innovative Career and Technical opportunities at the Southeastern Career Center and at our St Leon Campus; state champion caliber athletic programs in 20 high school sports, challenging and creative pathways in the fine arts, and most importantly, safe and secure schools where your student can grow and thrive as an academic and as a person.

As a servant leader, trust and communication are core values. Know that I have always been, and will continue to be, readily accessible to both you and your student(s) and respectfully honest even if we don’t agree in the end. Without honesty, there can be no trust. Our staff will work to ensure that every student has a path to success and a niche within our walls where they feel respected, accepted, and appreciated. These are basic components of every successful high school I’ve been a part of and are well defined goals within State expectations. To the best of our ability, we will:
  • Ensure a safe and secure learning environment,
  • Prioritize academic growth and success
  • Provide college and career access and exploration, and   
  • Incorporate social emotional learning opportunities within a positive school culture.
As a part of my first 100 days, we will be completing culture/climate audits. It is essential as we continue the great work East Central has been doing that we understand student, staff, and community needs and desires. We’ll also be looking at best-practices across content areas to ensure continued successful curriculum implementation.  

I have worked in education and athletics for 24 years all around the state and am committed to continuing what Sunman Dearborn Schools have already become widely known for, “surpassing expectations and inspiring success.” As I stated earlier, I am excited and feel blessed to be joining the Sunman Dearborn family and look forward to this year and the years to come.  

Respectfully,

Tom Black
