Principal's Bio


Mark Pumphrey has served as principal of Summerdale School since 2007.  He took his current position after serving as assistant principal the previous two years.  Prior to his administrative positions, Mr. Pumphrey taught both fourth and sixth grades for six years at our school.  Before becoming an educator, he served as an aircraft mechanic in the Navy for sixteen years. 

Mr. Pumphrey's history with our school began when he attended Summerdale School as a child for nine years.  "I feel blessed to have the opportunity to serve this community in the same school that I have such fond memories from my childhood," he is often heard to say.

The school has grown from two to the seven buildings currently occupied on our campus.  Our school is one of only two pre-K through 8th grade schools in the county.  "I have a great staff at Summerdale to work with and it is a joy to come to work every day," Mr. Pumphrey says.

He has been married to his high school sweetheart, Karen James Pumphrey, since 1982 and has one daughter, Megan Pumphrey Miller, and a beautiful grandson.
