Principal Welcome


My name is Billy May and I am the new, proud, and extremely excited principal at Jinks Middle School. First of all, congratulations to all of you who had a hand in the spectacular increase of the School Grade! The entire community celebrated your success and are looking forward to watching you climb even higher.


A bit more about me; I am a Hornet Alumni, a Graduate of Bay High School, a Masters’ Degree Holder of Florida State University, and most recently the Principal of Bay High School. I grew up in this community. And now have the unbelievable opportunity to return to my Alma Mater as the Jinks Principal.


During my time at Bay High, I enjoyed working with, cheering for, and watching Jinks Students learn, perform, compete and graduate. We at Bay High were very fortunate to have Hornets become Tornadoes.


The 2022-2023 School Year is upon us. I look forward to meeting and working with you and your families. I have a challenge or two for you: Become involved. Find an activity, a club, a sport. School is much, much more than Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic. It is my great desire to help all of our Hornets become well rounded academically, socially, physically, and emotionally.


So Hornets, Show Up! Be present, on time and ready to work.

Show Out! Be busy and strengthen your talents.


Show Off! Be proud of what you learn, who you become, and what you can offer.


Glad to Be Home!

Billy May, Principal
