Dr. Stinson began serving the Rossville community as Principal of Rossville Middle School at the beginning of the 2021-22 academic year.   He has served the students of Walker County since 2006, first as an RMS 8th grade Georgia Studies teacher, JV Volleyball Coach, and Head Wrestling Coach (working alongside Assistant Coaches Donald Shirley, Denson Lee, and Marty Simpson).  In 2010, he was named Walker County Distinguished Teacher of the Year.   In 2012, he became an RMS Assistant Principal.  In 2014, he moved to Ridgeland High School as Assistant Principal and Athletic Director.  He is fortunate to have worked alongside some of the greatest administrators in the state of Georgia, including Mrs. Jerri Lindley, Mr. Tobin Davidson, Mr. Glen Brown, Mr. Jason Pelham, and Mrs. Karen Hughes.
Prior to becoming a public school educator, Dr. Stinson served proudly in the United States Army as an Infantry Officer.  He was assigned to units in Fort Wainwright, Alaska, Fort Benning, Georgia, and Fort Drum, New York, and completed multiple tours of duty in support of the Global War on Terror.
Dr. Stinson is the proud father of four incredible children, Noah (a 2022 graduate of Norwich University), Ella (an RMS alumni and member of the Ridgeland High School graduating Class of 2018), Piper (RHS Class of 2028), and Petra (RHS Class of 2037).  He married his beautiful wife, Tanya, also a Walker County Schools educator, in 2016.  Dr. Stinson earned his B.S. at Toccoa Falls College, his M.Ed. from Covenant College, and his Ed.D. from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.  His dissertation is entitled Braxton Bragg on Leadership: Leader Member Exchange in the Army of Tennessee During the 1863 Campaigns for Chattanooga.
When Dr. Stinson is not at school, he loves to travel, study military history, philosophy, and Reformed Theology.  He enjoys scary movies and rock & roll, and his absolute favorite bands of all time are The Cure, Depeche Mode, Erasure, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Tool.  He’s a lifelong fan of the Atlanta Braves, the Atlanta Falcons, and the Georgia Bulldogs.  He also loves professional wrestling, moonlights as Robbie Rude in “Nature Boy” Paul Lee’s American Wrestling Federation, and serves as the official historian of the oldest and greatest professional wrestling entity in history, the National Wrestling Alliance.
More than anything else, Dr. Stinson is proud to be a Bulldog!  He loves his teachers and students and takes very seriously the traditional role of the educator as in loco parentis, arguing passionately that anything worth doing in education is an extension of good parenthood.
Go Bulldogs!  Go Panthers!  Be Rossville!!!
