Brian Humphrey - Specialist, Student Services

Brian Humphrey is a proud product of the Okaloosa County School District. He attended Bob Sikes Elementary School and Southside Elementary before attending Richbourg Junior High School. After graduating from Crestview High School, Brian attended Okaloosa Walton Community College before transferring to the University of West Florida (UWF) where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Health, Leisure and Sports Education. He continued his education at UWF, earning a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership.

He taught science at Baker School and Crestview High School before transferring to a job in the Office of Student Services where he has worked extensively in the field of discipline and athletics for the past five years.

LuCretia Waskow - Assistant Principal II, Edwins Elementary School

LuCretia Waskow, originally from Abilene, Texas, earned her Bachelor of Science from McMurry University and her Master’s in Educational Leadership from Trident University.

As a military spouse, LuCretia has taught science in Gulf Breeze, Texas, and Virginia. In 2014, the Waskow family moved to Okaloosa County where her husband retired from the military, and they planted roots so their children could be educated in the Okaloosa County School District. Since then, LuCretia has had the opportunity to teach Chemistry at Fort Walton Beach High School from 2014-2015 and both Biology and Chemistry at Niceville High School from 2015-2017.

Her time in the classroom and working with school leaders inspired LuCretia to pursue a future in administration. In 2017, she finished the Level II Course for Administrators and became an Assistant Principal at Choctawhatchee High School.

LuCretia thanks her husband Mark and their two children Tyler and Kelly for their support as she continues to pursue her administrative goals. “I would like to thank the School Board and the Superintendent for this recommendation and approval. Being an exemplar administrator in the Okaloosa County School District continues to be my goal and I am grateful for the opportunity to serve in this capacity. I am happy to accept this position and add to my repertoire of experience as an administrator. Thank you.”
