Brian Russell grew up in Chesterfield County where he attended Salem Church Elementary, Salem Middle, and graduated from L.C. Bird High School. He then taught at Salem Middle for 14 years before moving into administration at L. C. Bird. He was an assistant principal at Monacan High School for 8 years before he became the principal of CTC@Hull where he now serves as principal for both campuses of the Tech Center.
He has dedicated 26 years in education working in Chesterfield County as a Technology Education teacher and administrator. His strong desire to support the Technical Centers comes from his passion for the career and technical education programs. As a former contractor, he understands the value of learning a skilled trade and being exposed to career opportunities at an early age.
The Tech Center stands on three pillars of student engagement. The first is to create a safe and nurturing environment for all students. The second is to provide a career experience that models our workforce and our community. Finally, we build relationships to help our students become college or career ready.
