Mr. Matthew Price

I am truly blessed to have been given this opportunity to come back to Harnett County as Principal of Western Harnett High School. At WHHS, students will be afforded the highest level of instruction, academic growth, and personal fulfillment that our faculty and staff can offer. My expectation for each student is for them to work to their fullest potential in every endeavor that they embark upon during their time here.  

As a faculty and staff, we will collectively maintain our focus to support students in this endeavor. By providing the highest quality instructional programs, athletics, arts, and student services; each student will be afforded the opportunity to excel and reach their future goals after graduation. Our ultimate goal at WHHS is to develop academically successful students, while also equipping them with the necessary skills to become prepared and productive citizens.  

For 40 years this school has stood as a beacon of this proud community.  Many of our faculty and staff are former graduates, and community members that have graduated from WHHS never miss the opportunity to remind me that, “Once an Eagle, always an Eagle.” Every member of WHHS will be expected to demonstrate pride, ethical behavior, and positive stewardship for the school and it’s members. I am excited for the opportunity to work toward strengthening this community by developing successful future leaders.

Mr. Matthew Price, Principal WHHS
