Mr. Randy Yaussi, Principal

I was born in eastern Kansas and our family moved to Colorado when I was very young. I was fortunate to earn an athletic scholarship to Colorado State University where I ran Track and Cross country for four years.  I began my education career at Poudre High School in Fort Collins where I was a Business Teacher, Administrator, Head Boys and Girls Track Coach, Head Boys and Girls Cross Country Coach, and finished working at the District Level as the Human Relations Facilitator.  Next, I worked at the University of Wyoming where I was the Director of the Upward Bound Program.  However, I can honestly say that my last nine years at Highland High School have been some of my most rewarding years in education.  We are very fortunate in this community to have great students, a very supportive Board of Education and Superintendent, and wonderful parent and community support!  My wonderful Carol and I are the proud parents of two adult children and 5 awesome grandkids!

GO HUSKIES!

Mrs. Kari Lintner, Assistant Principal

I received my B.A in Political Science from the Ohio State University, and my M.A in Education from Colorado State University. I have had the great fortune of spending my entire career in education with Weld Re9 Schools! Starting in 2004, I was in the classroom teaching Social Studies at the high school for 7 years  when I had the opportunity to serve the district as Curriculum Director half-time. Finally, I was fortunate to have another golden opportunity to serve as Assistant Principal, while serving concurrently as Curriculum Director, which I have been doing since 2014. I often refer to Weld Re9 schools as a 'hidden gem' to the rest of the Front Range. I feel so special to be a part of this student body, faculty, district, and community!    

I have two grown children. My daughter Hannah  is a graduate from Lewis and Clark College and is currently living in Vietnam.  My son Levi is a sophomore at Colorado State University studying Civil Engineering.  I am deeply proud of both my children!  In my spare time I enjoy camping, paddleboarding, and cooking great food.
