Mr. Randy Yaussi, Principal

I was born in eastern Kansas and my family moved to Colorado when I was very young. I was fortunate to earn an athletic scholarship to Colorado State University where I ran Track and Cross Country.  I earned a BS Degree in Business Administration from CSU as well as an M.ED. in Education.  I began my education career at Poudre High School in Fort Collins where I was a Business Teacher, Administrator, Head Boys and Girls Track Coach, Head Boys and Girls Cross Country Coach, and finished working at the District Level as the Human Relations Facilitator.  Next, I worked at the University of Wyoming where I was the Director of the Upward Bound Program.  However, I can honestly say that my last eleven years at Highland High School have been some of my most rewarding years in education.  We are very fortunate in this community to have great students, and wonderful parent and community support!  My wife Carol and I are the proud parents of two adult children and 5 awesome grandkids!

GO HUSKIES!
