I thank each student for their efforts and challenge them to reach higher. CAPS is preparing its students to meet the challenges of the 21st century and I welcome you to be a part of our legacy.
Yours in education,
Salutations! My name is Chas Ferrell and I can’t tell you how excited I am for the opportunity to be the Assistant Principal at Cadillac High School! I grew up in Flint, Michigan before leaving to pursue higher education at Central Michigan University. At CMU I earned a Bachelor's degree in Education with a Social Studies major. I started my career as a Social Studies teacher and football coach in Farwell, and during that tenure earned a Masters degree in Business, Management, and Technology in Education from Ball State University. From there, I then accepted the opportunity as the Clare Adult Education Coordinator and Alternative Education Teacher. During this assignment, I completed my Masters in Educational Leadership through the American College of Education. My hobbies are competitive bowling and football. To close, I am beyond excited for the opportunity to work with students, parents, staff and the Cadillac community to help everyone reach their full potential. Go Vikings!
