Principal's Bio


Image for Principal



I am Brian Hodgin, Principal at Archdale-Trinity Middle School.  I am excited about being a part of the ATMS family.  I am looking forward to working with you this year as we prepare our students for a successful future.


My hometown is Colfax where I attended Northwest Guilford High School.  I received my BSEd in Physical Education from Western Carolina University.  GO CATAMOUNTS!   I have been involved with high school athletics for a good part of my career, coaching football for eleven years as well as baseball, golf and track during that time.  I received my MSA in Educational Leadership from the University of North Carolina Greensboro.  I started working in the Randolph County School System in 2007 and this is my 22nd year in education.  I enjoy the family atmosphere we have in Randolph County, where all stakeholders share the responsibility and accountability for student learning. 


I met my wife Dee at WCU and we have two children.  Wes is a 9th grader at Wheatmore High School and Gracie is a 5th grader at Hopewell Elementary where my wife teaches physical education.  I enjoy spending time with family, playing golf, hunting and fishing.
