From The Principal

Hello Utica High families, 

Mr. YoungbloodI hope you are enjoying your summer and looking forward to a great 2022-23 school year.  My name is Tim Youngblood, and I have the privilege of being named as the next Principal at Utica High School. Utica has a proud legacy of excellence, and I am excited to join the team.

Please allow me to share a little about my personal and professional background. I am a proud UCS graduate. I attended Crissman Elementary, Malow Jr. High and Eisenhower H.S. (Class of 1993). I obtained my Undergraduate degree from Hillsdale College and completed my Education Specialist in Administration from Oakland University. I began my teaching career in Anchor Bay Schools where I taught History and Biology for six years. I accepted my first administrative job as the Assistant Principal and Athletic Director for Warren Fitzgerald H.S. Following Fitzgerald I accepted the administrator job in Utica Community Schools for their AdvancePath Academy program.  I then moved to Stevenson High School as the Associate Principal from 2014 until the Spring of 2021. This past year I was named Interim Principal at Henry Ford II High School. 

I have been married to my wife Angela for 22 years and we are the proud parents of four children (Peyton-20, Lucy-18, JT-16 and Wade-12).
I want to recognize the incredible leadership of Mr. Lietz. I look forward to working with him over these next few weeks as we continue to move forward Utica High School’s mission of excellence. 

The community support and family atmosphere at Utica H.S. is renowned in the district. I am very honored and excited to be part of that tradition.
