Superintendent Announces Four New Principals Retirements at two schools resulted in the shuffling of four school administrators for the coming school year. Joyce Poplin at Nebo and Charles Gaffigan at East Middle announced their retirements earlier in the spring. Ms. Poplin is retiring after 40 years of service at Nebo Elementary. She started her teaching career at Nebo in August 1976 and was named principal at the school in July 2002. Mr. Gaffigan began his teaching career at McDowell High in May 1988. He was named principal at Old Fort in July 2004, and was reassigned as principal at East Middle (then East Junior High) in July 2010. Both retirements are effective on 30 June. Mr. Garrett shared “We are very thankful to both Joyce and Charles for their many years of distinguished service to the students of McDowell County Schools, and we wish them nothing but the best as they embark on this next chapter of their lives.” Replacing Mr. Gaffigan at East Middle will be MHS assistant principal Jennifer Croymans. Ms. Croymans began her career as a teacher of Exception Children in August 2007. She served in that role for six years and was named assistant principal at McDowell High in July 2013. She has served specifically as the Titan Academy (for Freshmen) administrator since July 2015. Nebo’s next leader will be current North Cove principal Desarae Kirkpatrick. Ms. Kirkpatrick began her career as a NC Pre-K teacher at Glenwood Elementary in August 2002. She left the county in 2003 to teach 3rd Grade in Madison County, and then returned to MCS as an assistant principal at MHS in July 2006. Kirkpatrick was named principal at North Cove in 2008, and was reassigned to West Marion in August 2012. She returned to the helm at North Cove in 2015. Current Marion Elementary principal Rod Slagle will be the next principal at North Cove. Mr. Slagle began his career as a teacher at East Junior High in 1992. He was elevated to assistant principal in 2005 and later served in the same role in Burke County. Mr. Slagle relocated to Mitchell County in 2009 to serves as principal at Bowman Middle School and later at Harris Middle. He returned to McDowell County as principal at Marion in 2013. MHS assistant principal Ashley McCartha will be the next principal at Marion. She began her career as a science teacher at MHS in 2006. She served in that role until being selected as a NC Principal Fellows in 2010. She completed the fellowship program in 2012 and then served as assistant principal at both East and West Junior High. She was reassigned to her current role at McDowell High in 2014. “We are very confident in all of our new principals, and I have high hopes for next year and many years to come” stated Garrett. The new principal assignments will be effective on 1 July.

We have recently been made aware of conversations making the rounds on social media regarding a "senior prank" at McDowell High School and want to set the record straight. While some students have approached school officials about hosting a "Senior Celebration" as a fun way to celebrate the end of their time at MHS, there are no plans for a "senior prank". Anyone attempting to conduct a "senior prank" will face severe repercussions from the school and possibly law enforcement. We want seniors focused on successfully completing their high school careers, celebrating their accomplishments, and looking forward to the next steps in their individual journeys. Should you have questions or concerns about this or any other item, please contact McDowell High School directly and ask to speak with an administrator.
