Tim Wilder - Principal
I am proud and honored to be the principal at Moore Haven Middle-High School. I was born and raised in Port St. Joe, Florida where I graduated from Port St. Joe High School in 1987. I attended George C. Wallace Community College from 1987-1989 and transferred to Georgia Southern University where I received my BS degree in Communications in 1992. I was fortunate to play baseball during my college career and played in the College World Series in Omaha in 1990. I received my MS degree in Educational Leadership from Florida State University in 1997.
I served as Superintendent of Schools in Gulf County, Florida for 7 years and as Superintendent of Schools in Dothan, Alabama for 3 ½ years. Previous to that I taught Speech, Debate and English classes at Wakulla High School. I have also served as High School Assistant Principal, Elementary School Principal and High School Principal.
I served as the President of the Board of Directors for the Florida High School Athletics Association where I was a member for 3 years; was named Florida’s “Principal of the Year” in 2004; Superintendent of the Year in Alabama, Region 3 in 2012; Superintendent’s State Volunteer of the Year Award for 3 years; served on the Regional Board for the Alabama High School Athletics Association; Chairman of the Supt/AHSAA Advisory board for the state of Alabama; and has served as keynote speaker for many events all across this country.
I am the proud father of daughter Kaley (21) who is a senior at Troy University and majoring in Athletic Training and son Walt (18) and he is in the welding field serving as a boilermaker. My hobbies include fishing, hunting and going to Florida State University football games.
