My name is Jimmy Tullos, and I am so excited to be the principal at Utica Elementary Middle School for the 2022-2023 school year! UEMS has a tradition of excellence that we will strive to continue this year, fulfilling the Promise of Utica. I look forward to getting to know all of the students, parents, and the greater Utica community as we come together to inspire and encourage the young people of Utica.
This is my eighteenth year in education. Last year I was an Assistant Principal at Terry High School, and before that, I was an administrator in Rankin County for 6 years. I am also a Mississippi Army National Guard veteran, having served 32 years, culminating as a Sergeant Major. I am married to the former Marilyn Lee of Crystal Springs, and we have two children, Kaitlyn (24), and Ethan (21).
My door is always open, and I look forward to getting to know everyone in this great community.
Together we will fulfill the Promise of Utica!
