Principal's Message

OJ Hall

Greetings Parents and Guardians:

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at East Laurens High School. My name is Otha Jermaine Hall, and I am very excited to be the new principal of East Laurens High School.

Prior to coming to East Laurens High School, I served as a history teacher for 6 years, assistant principal for 3 years at West Laurens High School, and Principal for one year at East Laurens Middle School. While at West Laurens, I also served as a middle school track coach for 5 years, head boys’ middle school basketball coach for 1 year, assistant varsity boys’ basketball coach for 6 years, and head varsity boys’ basketball coach for 3 years. I am currently in my 10th year of education. I attended Middle Georgia College where I received an Associate of Science degree in secondary education. I continued my education at Georgia Southern University where I received a Bachelor of Science in history education. After graduating from Georgia Southern University, I continued my education at Georgia College & State University where I received my master and specialist’s degrees in educational leadership. I recently completed my doctorate in curriculum studies with an emphasis in instructional improvement at Georgia Southern University in December of 2014.

I am married to Erica Hall. Mrs. Hall is a kindergarten teacher at Telfair Elementary School.  We have one daughter, Mya Hall, who is 16 months old.

I am extremely excited to be a part of the East Laurens High School family where Sprit and Pride are the Keys to Victory! I am committed to bringing out the best that East Laurens High School has to offer in all areas. I am dedicated and committed to the faculty, students, and community of East Laurens High School.



Dr. Otha J. Hall
