My name is Andy Trekell and it is my pleasure to serve the students and staff of Huntington PRIDE. I have been married to my wife Dora for 31 years and we have three children. A 26 year old son, a 23 year old daughter and a 17 year old son and one granddaughter. I have a bachelor's degree from Texas A&M University and a Master's degree from SFA. I have been an educator in the public schools of Texas for 30 years. I have served as a Science teacher and coach, a high school and intermediate assistant principal, a high school principal, and a superintendent. PRIDE is the most gratifying position I have held in my career because PRIDE offers students the "second chance" opportunity to get their diploma and it is gratifying to see the students overcome huge obstacles on their way to earning a diploma. If you ever have any questions, concerns, or need information regarding the criteria for being accepted into the PRIDE program, please do not hesitate to contact me at the school.
