Lora Austin, Principal

Hello, Walter Johnson Middle School! I am thrilled to begin this historic year with you. While we are not starting and having a "normal" year together, I can honestly say that WJMS will be buzzing just like all other years. Our students will be learning content in a way that is personalized for their needs. We know that we will get through this together!
A little bit about me… I am a mom of two lovely daughters, Keely and Hannah, and wife of Chuck Austin. We live in the “one-stop sign town” of Collettsville. I am a Tar Heel and a Mountaineer, and a middle-level educator. I am thrilled to serve the Walter Johnson Middle School Community where I taught when the school opened. This is my second year as principal of Walter Johnson Middle School. I’m so excited to serve this wonderful community of learners.
WJMS has been GROWING students like no other! I know that we will build on that tradition. Let us be patient and understanding of each other during this time of learning and experiencing together. Please reach out to me if you have any questions at (828) 430-7340. GO, Yellow Jackets!
