Dr. Benny L. Bolden, Jr.

  • It is truly an honor to be your Principal at R. Frank Nims Middle School. I am thrilled to begin the new school year. One of my primary goals is to continue to build on the foundational principle of bringing our school community and the community at large together in a spirit of cooperation, teamwork, trust, respect, and collaboration as we move toward our shared vision of preparing every student for ongoing learning as well as community and global responsibilities. The atmosphere has been set for success and I am looking forward to what we will do together. Cooperatively, we will work hard to ensure that every child at R. Frank Nims Middle School is presented with the tools and resources needed for success during the 2023-2024 school year.
