ECS Administration

Principal - DeHavon Scott

DeHavon Scott was born and raised in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area.  As a native of the area, Mr. Scott received his formal education in the Prince George's County Public School System.  He earned his Bachelor of Arts in Music Education from Delaware State University and his Master of Education degree in Curriculum Instruction from Walden University.  He’s currently in his final year of the doctoral degree program at Grand Canyon University (Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership, with emphasis in K-12 Education).

 

His passion for education started early on, and he began his career serving in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia public, private, and charter schools.  With a career span of 15 years, he’s most proud of the investment in the young men and women in those communities. Mr. Scott previously served as Assistant Principal for Student Life at Archbishop Carroll High School; Assistant Principal at Forcey Christian School; and Assistant Principal at Bethel Christian Academy.

 

During his tenure as an educator, Mr. Scott realized there was a great need for young men in the African American community to witness and have access to African American professionals, and therefore birthed his mentoring program.  He understood the importance of creating a safe space where young men had the opportunity to share their life experiences, seek guidance, and develop trusted relationships with their mentors.  Men Empowering Now (M.E.N.), LLC is a mentoring program designed to assist young men ages 8-17, with a focus on Faith, Leadership, Family, and Wellness.  He currently serves as the Youth & Young Adult Pastor at his local church, under the leadership of his parents, Apostle Richard Scott and First Lady Carol Scott.

 

Mr. Scott resides in Prince George's County with his beautiful wife, Jennifer. They’re the proud parents of son Jordan and daughter Zion-Elizabeth.  In his spare time, he enjoys playing various instruments, watching sports, and traveling with his beloved family.

Liza Long is an accomplished educator and administrator who brings over twenty years of public and private school experience to the Excellence Christian School community. After her undergraduate and graduate studies at both Howard University and American University in Washington, DC, Liza embarked upon a teaching career that began in Prince George’s County public schools and transitioned into teaching and administration within several faith-based independent schools within the District of Columbia and Maryland.


After years of honing her craft, Liza fulfilled her professional goal of becoming an administrator six years ago with roles in independent schools that included Director of Lower School Admission, Head of Lower School, and most recently as an Assistant Lower School principal. Each of these experiences has allowed Liza to merge her love for working with and supporting teachers, students and families as they navigate through the elementary school years.


Though Liza is proud of her professional accomplishments, she is most proud and thankful for the blessing of her family, which includes her wonderful husband of over two decades, two amazing young adult children who are recent college graduates, and a large family that fills her time with laughter and joy. When not spending time with her family, Liza enjoys traveling, running, doing yoga, reading, gardening, and cooking.

Psalm 46:10 that states: “Be still and know that I am God” is a guide for Liza and how she lives her life. Knowing that all is possible through faith and prayer, she feels blessed to be the Assistant Principal and in a role of service for the Excellence Christian School community.
