Please welcome, Mrs. Lisa Beskenis, to our SCHS school community as our new Assistant Principal. 

Originally from Hampton, Virginia, Lisa now lives in Fairfax with her husband Nick and 6-month-old son Alex. Lisa graduated from the University of Virginia with her Bachelor of Arts in English and Fine Arts and Master of Teaching. She worked as an English teacher for eleven years, during which time she served as the department chair at McLean High School, worked extensively on countywide curriculum development, and mentored new teachers as a Great Beginnings coach. In 2021 Lisa graduated from the ACC XVI cohort with her endorsement in administration and supervision and transitioned into an assistant principal position at Oakton High School for the 2021-2022 school year. Lisa’s passion for centering and empowering student voice has been a primary driver throughout her career, and Lisa is thrilled to bring that passion to the South County family as the newest assistant principal.
