About Us

From Principal Rief Gilg

Principal Rief Gilg

Hello all Vikings!

   Welcome back to a year that is truly unlike anything we have ever seen; unprecedented health issues had a drastic impact on the way we finished the last school year, and many of those changes have carried over, joining new ones in making this year one that we will out of necessity navigate in a different way.

   Everyday routines and protocol at HNHS, and the way we go about our day at HNHS, have changed noticeably.  There has also been a strong and positive change in our virtual options, giving students the chance to receive a great education both in and outside of our traditional school setting.

And while some things have changed, the outstanding education we just mentioned is happening in all settings because of the things that haven’t changed at HNHS.  We are still filled with an absolutely amazing staff, filled with people whose incredible talents for teaching are matched only by their willingness to give of themselves to place students in positions to succeed.  Our halls are still filled with young men and women who bring their passions and abilities to school and who dedicate and immerse themselves in the act of learning every single day.

   And our students and staff working together is what creates the spirit of Huntington North; a spirit borne from the very DNA of Huntington County.  Fashioned from the qualities of work ethic and selfless service to others, this spirit has seen our communities through difficult times before, and is an indelible guide through our current situation.

   Thank you, all of you, for being who you are, and for sharing of yourselves to make Huntington North High School the fantastic place to learn and work that it is!

Go Vikings!

Rief A. Gilg, Principal
