Mr. Matt Newquist

Welcome! My name is Matt Newquist and I am proud to serve as Assistant Principal at Sherrard High School. This will be my second year at Sherrard and my 12th year in education. Prior to my time at Sherrard, I was fortunate to teach and coach at Rock Island High School as well as in the Chicagoland area. I am a proud graduate of Western Illinois University where I was fortunate enough to play baseball for four years. 

I consider it an honor and privilege to be able to help lead students' and staff at such a high performing school such at Sherrard. My mission is to foster students' learning to its highest potential while providing educational experiences that academically, socially, and emotionally shape our students into independent and productive members of society. 
Thank you for accepting me into your community and I look forward to working with you all. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns!
