What do you like best about your school/work location?
Kings Mountain High is a special place because of the rich tradition of academic success that has been established. From our teachers to custodians, to support staff, everyone at Kings Mountain High School is dedicated to promoting student learning.

If you could give students one piece of advice, what would it be and why?
Be nice and show respect to everyone - even when they don't deserve it - for that shows your true character and helps you build your legacy.

Why is Cleveland County Schools special to you?

I have many fond memories from my time in school at Township Three Elementary, Crest Middle, and Crest High. The staff members/students of Cleveland County Schools in which I have had the pleasure of learning from and working with, have shaped and continue to shape my life as a professional educator. I am forever grateful to the awesome teachers I had throughout my educational journey in Cleveland County Schools.
