From The Principal

Hello Utica High families, 

Mr. Youngblood

I would like to take an opportunity to introduce myself to the Utica H.S. community. My name is Tim Youngblood and I have the pleasure to be named as the Principal at Utica H.S. I grew up in UCS, having attended Crissman, Malow and Eisenhower (class of 1993). I then attended Hillsdale College where I obtained my Bachelors Degree. I have worked as a teacher in Anchor Bay Schools, an Administrator in Fitzgerald Schools and finally came back to UCS in 2010. Most recently, I was the Interim Principal at Henry Ford II H.S. this past school year.

My wife, Angela, is a preschool teacher in Rochester and we have four wonderful children (Peyton, Lucy, JT and Wade) ranging from the ages of 12 to 20.

I cannot tell you how excited I am to join the Utica H.S. Community. I want to give a special thank you to Mr. Lietz for everything he has done for Utica H.S. I will do what I can to follow in his footsteps. I look forward to meeting as many of you in person as I possibly can over the course of the school year. Let's have a great school year!
