Cody Havranek
JH/HS Principal


Hello, my name is Cody Havranek and I am excited to be the 7-12 High School Principal at West Holt this upcoming school year.  My wife, Sarah, and I moved to Atkinson from O’Neill this past June with our family.  Sarah is an educator as well and teaches Kindergarten at O’Neill Public Schools.  Throughout my educational career I have previously taught JH/HS Science at Lexington Public Schools, O’Neill Public Schools, and for the past six years have been the PK-12 Principal at St. Mary’s in O’Neill.  I have also had the opportunity to coach several different activities throughout my time in education including football, basketball, wrestling, track, golf, and quiz bowl.  I have enjoyed the relationships that have been built both in and out of the classroom.


My wife and I have three children.  Our children, Ryan (10), Reid (8), and Hadley (5) have been enjoying baseball, golfing, camping, and boating this summer.  They have met a few of their new classmates through summer activities and are excited to be at West Holt this fall.  


When I was interviewing with various groups I kept hearing about how the community rallies around the children in the community.  Through interactions with several parents, students, and community members this summer it is evident that West Holt and the community of Atkinson cares about their students and the community as a whole.  This is evident through friendly students and staff, the excellent facilities, and a supportive school board.  I am excited for the 2021-2022 school year at West Holt!


Feel free to introduce yourself if I see you out and about!
