    Hello Hawks! My name is Jessica Cooney. I am so excited to serve as your Principal. I grew up in Longmont, Colorado and obtained my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the University of Northern Colorado. I have lived in Greeley for 21 years. My husband and I have 2 daughters who are in high school (one at Greeley West and one at Greeley Central). I have been in education for 25 years and I love it now more than ever. In my free time, I love spending time with family, playing with our dog, running, doing triathlons, and being active. I can't wait to meet you all and I am thrilled to be part of the Hawk Family!

    Hello Hawks! My name is Karen Pullen. I am one of the Assistant Principals at PHMS. I am originally from Virginia, where I grew up going to the beach and camping. I have always loved nature, which led me to multiple degrees in science and eventually to become a science teacher. I have been in education for 15 years now, with the last 7 here in Greeley, Colorado. My love for education has since brought me into administration and to Prairie Heights (the best place!).

    Hello Hawks! My name is Bob Williams and I am one of the assistant principals at Prairie Heights Middle School. I was born and raised in the mountains of Colorado before moving to Greeley to become a UNC Bear. Go Bears! I've lived in and around Greeley with my wife and two sons for 30 years. We love to spend time exploring the mountains with our dog Missy as much as possible. When we aren't in the mountains we are cheering on the Colorado sports teams, especially the Broncos! This is my 26th year in education. I started out as a high school and middle school social studies teacher and coached girls basketball. I love our Hawk family and I am looking forward to celebrating the incredible accomplishments we will all experience this school year.

    Hello Hawk Family! My name is Jason Young and I am the Dean Of Students and Athletic Director at PHMS. I was born and raised in Greeley and have loved being here since I was a child. When I am not at work, I spend my summers on the lake wakeboarding, waterskiing, and enjoying the warm weather. If you do not find me on the lake, it means me and the family have taken a tropical vacation somewhere. I am an avid sports fan, especially of our Colorado teams. Yes, I still cheer on the Broncos. I have been in education for 21 years, 20 of which have been spent at John Evans/Prairie Heights. Before becoming the Dean 7 years ago, I was a physical education and health teacher. Over the years, I have coached wrestling at the high school level and both football and wrestling at the middle school level. I am looking forward to another amazing year at Prairie Heights.
