• Hello, my name is Troy Hayes. It is a gift to be continuing as the the Oak Grove Principal for the 2017-18 school year. I am entering my 13th year with Burton School District and have served in education for a total of 20 years. My experience includes 10 years as an elementary teacher. Over the past 5 years I have had the blessing of leading in a Vice Principal role at Burton Elementary, Summit Charter Academy, Summit Charter Collegiate Academy, and for two years as Principal of Burton Pathways. 

    I am a 1990 graduate of Lindsay High School. I earned my BA Degree in Communications from Cal State University Fullerton, and later completed my Teaching Credential from CSU Bakersfield. Eventually I went to on to obtain a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of La Verne.

    For the past 13 years I have been married to my wife Jeannie, who owns a karaoke business in Porterville. We have a 22 year old daughter who loves photography and is currently attending community college. I am a huge sports fan, and have been known to win a few fantasy football leagues. 

    I look forward to an outstanding year! Go Stars!
