My name is Terry Conder, high school principal at Achille Public Schools. I graduated from school in 1978 from Rattan, a small school in Southeastern Oklahoma. After high school, I attended college at SOSU in Durant ok. I recieved my BS degree in 1982. I began my teaching career at Cyril High School and later taught at Clayton OK. Canadian OK., and Alva OK. I recieved my Master's Dergee from East Central University in 2003. After coaching and teaching for twenty plus years I began my career in administrative in 2004 at Alva Middle School. In 2006 we were selected as a ''Blue Ribbon School'' by the United States Department of Education and from that recognition were chosen as one of three schools to be highlighted on the USDE's television program ''Education News Parents Can Use''. I have been fortunate enough to have refereed numerous playoff games as well as the Class A-B State Tournanment eight times.
