Principal, Darren Schmidt
I am excited to have the opportunity to serve as the principal of South Middle School. My goal each day is to learn and grow professionally and personally. I’m originally from Nebraska and enjoy cheering on the Huskers. In my free time I enjoy many outdoor activities, sports, learning new hobbies, exploring the Black Hills and watching my kids grow up and participating in activities. I look forward to the future and all the great things South Middle School has done and will do!
