Mrs. Becky Lantrip, Assistant Principal


I am very thankful to be serving as the Assistant Principal at Oak Grove Central Elementary School. It is a privilege to be a part of such a special group and I look forward to all we will accomplish this year!

I was raised in DeSoto County and graduated from Southaven High School in 1984. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Union University and my Master’s Degree from Arkansas State University. I taught at Southaven High School for 15 years, serving in both the Special Education and Math Departments. 

I have been married to my husband, Billy, since 1988, and we now live in Lake Cormorant. We are blessed to be the parents of five wonderful children: Houston, Dustin, Savanah, Dillon, and Breanna. 

It's a great time to be a Hernando Tiger and I am so excited to be a part of the amazing things happening at OGCES!
