I’m Niki Seley, Principal of Vernon Middle School. I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself.
I am a lifetime resident of Washington County. I attended Vernon Elementary School, Vernon Middle School, and Vernon High School. I was very involved around campus in softball and band. I graduated from Vernon in 1991 as a third generation Vernon High School graduate. I have a bachelor's degree in Middle Grades Math from Chipola College and a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the University of West Florida.
Family is very important to me. I am married to the love of my life, Allen, and we have a son, Sy, and a daughter-in-law, Kacy. I am active in Courts of Praise church where I volunteer with Courts of Praise Youth and am a member of the praise and worship team. I enjoy spending time outdoors fishing, hunting, and camping. Last but not least, I am a Vernon Yellow Jacket to my core. Any given day, you’ll find me cheering on the Vernon Jackets at sporting events.
Educating and leading today’s youth is truly my life passion. I believe ALL students can learn and ALL students can experience success within a safe and nurturing environment. My goal for Vernon Middle School is to create a culture of positivity and excellence to propel our students towards meeting their full potential. I am grateful for the opportunity to lead our school in this direction.

Educating is my passion. I have a background in working with students with specific behavioral and educational needs, so I feel I can bring that background into this position.
