James Gilbert (Jay)

Hello, I am the Coordinator of Student Activities/Athletic Director at Bassett High School in Henry County, Virginia.  This is my 32nd year in education and my eighteenth year at Bassett High School.  I came over from the former Fieldale-Collinsville High School when Henry County consolidated the two high schools into one.  I graduated from Guilford College with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting and obtained a teaching license in Accounting, Mathematics, and Physical Education.  I also obtained a Masters Degree in Sports Administration.  I have two wonderful children, Cierra Nicole, who attends UVA and Jacob William, who attends Bassett High School.
