But I will miss the students most of all. They have taught me invaluable lessons during my time here, and I wish them nothing but long, happy, and successful lives.”
A long time resident of Morgan Hill, Mr. Webb began his career at MHUSD in 1995 as a teacher at Live Oak High School. From teacher and varsity football coach to assistant principal and then principal, Webb has dedicated his life to enhancing the lives of students in Morgan Hill.
“Throughout his tenure, Lloyd has been a trusted advisor to thousands of students in Morgan Hill while ushering the school community to tremendous success. As a parent, educator, and coach he brought a breadth of perspective to work with him every day which allowed him to connect with students, parents, and staff even during the most challenging times,” Superintendent Steve Betando said. “He will be missed, and we wish him the best of luck on this new journey.”
