Dante Lee

Executive Director of the Healthcare Excellence Academy Lab School School of Health Sciences

I am excited to be the new Executive Director of the HEALS program (Healthcare Excellence Academy Lab School).  This is a new program funded by the Virginia Department of Education.  Before accepting this position, I worked as the Director of Capital Projects for Bristol Virginia Public Schools for the past two years.  I retired as a high school principal from Wythe County Public Schools in 2020.  I spent thirty years in education as a teacher, coach, and administrator.  The last fifteen years of my career I served as the principal of Coeburn High School, Eastside High School and George Wythe High School.
