North Platte High School | Assistant Principal

My name is John Byrn. I am originally from Lawrence, Kansas and graduated from Lawrence High School. I received my Associate's degree from Butler County Community College, my Bachelor's degree from Emporia State University and my Master's degree from the University of Nebraska - Kearney.

I am married to Shelly Byrn. She is employed by North Platte Catholic Schools. We have two children, Samantha and Bryce. Samantha is attending Fort Hays State University and Bryce is attending Hastings College.

Prior to coming to North Platte High School, I was the principal at Jefferson Elementary School in North Platte, NE from 2014 - 2018 and before that I was the Dean of Students at Madison Middle School and coached football, boys' and girls' basketball, and in the summer, a competitive girls' fastpitch softball team. I am looking forward to the opportunity to work and serve the students, staff and school community at North Platte High School.
