It is with great OB pride that I continue the role of Principal at Olive Branch High School! The 100 years of school spirit, pride, and tradition began long before my time and will continue long after I am gone, but I am glad to be a part of it in my own lifetime. There is no other school that has the spirit of Olive Branch High School. Thank you parents, students, community, and staff for giving me the opportunity to serve you!


On a personal note, my husband and I have lived in Olive Branch for 10 years. My son Noah (6) and daughter Mollie Kate (3) will both be at Olive Branch Elementary this fall.  My husband is in his third year as band director at Hernando High School. We are both very blessed to work for DeSoto County Schools.



I began my career as a seventh grade English teacher at Winona Secondary School. I also taught ninth grade at DeSoto Central and Center Hill High Schools. I started at OBHS in 2008 where I was an assistant principal for five years before being named Principal in November of 2013.



I hold a Master's degree in Educational Leadership from Delta State University, a Master's degree in English from Mississippi State, and a Bachelor's degree in English Education from Delta State.



Again, I am very excited to continue the tradition and pride of Olive Branch High School. I fell in love with this school the moment I walked through the front doors. I am excited to continue my career as your Principal.



With MUCH OB pride,



Allyson Killough
