As an administrator, he was Assistant Principal for seven years and Principal for four years of Greenwood Junior High School, Assistant Principal of Greenwood High School. Aaron had recently assumed the position of Greenwood High School Principal, his long term career goal, a challenge he was excited to conquer.

One of the finest young men we knew. An advocate for his students and a light house personality to all.

Tara and Dacie, I have thought and prayed for you every day. I´m just so broken-hearted for you. God will walk you through these times of mourning. I watched Aaron grow up from a little boy to a wonderful man. Then we worked together. I will miss that beautiful heart and smile he had for everyone he met. Godspeed my friend.
