Ron served as an Assistant Principal for six years before becoming a principal in 2004. He served as a high school principal for fourteen consecutive years.


Ron and his wife, Kim, have five children, Magen Sorrells, Ben, Lanie Thompson, Caitlan and Annamarie Merritt. In addition, they have three grandchildren, Evan and Aytch Sorrells and Locke Snell. Ron and Kim are members of Slocomb First Baptist Church.


Ron will work hard to help ensure that every student that enters Geneva City Schools is provided a challenging curriculum, graduates on time and ready for college or a 21st-century job, while having a genuine sense of pride in our awesome schools. He knows that this mission is critical and only possible if the faculty, students, parents, and community work together. Ron believes that together we can ensure each student will be ready for a successful life beyond high school and that Geneva City schools can and will continue to have a Tradition of Excellence.
