Lora Austin, Principal

Hello, Walter Johnson Middle School!  I am thrilled to begin the 2019-2020 with you.  My name is Lora Austin. This is starting my 25th year in education.  I cannot wait for our school year to begin!

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 return to the Walter Johnson Middle School Community where I taught when the school opened.  Most recently, I was the principal of East Burke Middle School. Before that, I was the principal of Hillcrest Elementary School for five years..  I’m so excited - it’s like I am coming home!

I am fortunate to follow in the footsteps of Dr. Wilson.  WJMS has been GROWING students like no other! I know that we will build on that tradition.   I can’t wait for the school year to begin!
