Principal's Corner

I feel privileged to serve the community of Jamesport as Principal of Tri-County R-VII.  As I begin my fifteenth year in education, I continue to strive to make a difference in the lives of all students. Prior to Tri-County, I spent 8 years teaching 3rd and 5th grade in the North Kansas City and Platte County School Districts, 2 years as an Administrator in Colorado Springs and 3 years as an Administrator in Trenton.  I received my Bachelor's of Science from Missouri Western State University in Elementary Education and my Master's Degree from Northwest Missouri State University in Educational Leadership.

When I am not busy spending time with the students and faculty of my school community, I enjoy spending time with my family.  My husband, Andrew, is an Alum of Tri-County and we are very excited to bring our two children, Saige and Reed, to Tri-County.  As a family we enjoy camping, sports and spending as much time outdoors as possible.  I am also an EXTREME Kansas City Chief's fan!

I look forward to the 2017-2018 School Year and working with students, families, faculty and the community to make a difference in the lives of our students.

Best,

Whitney L. Olson
PK-12 Principal
