“We are pleased to welcome Jimbo Hale and his family to Westwood! In his career Jimbo has proven himself to be a person of great energy, strong work ethic, and Christian character,” states Kevin Cloud, new Headmaster for Westwood.
“I want to thank the Westwood administration and hiring committee for their confidence in me. I’m well aware of Westwood’s strong and proud tradition and I’m truly honored to be following in the footsteps of some outstanding football coaches! My family and I have the strong desire to setup “roots” and contribute to the community in which we are called. There is no doubt I will pour my heart and soul into Westwood as my heart truly lies in building into a school and its communities and leaving behind a legacy that far outlasts me: all while building a championship football program. The Hale bunch is both excited and blessed to be joining the Wildcat family!”
