Principal's Corner

Dear CES Families,

My name is Joseph Whited, and I am honored to serve as the Principal of Cleveland Elementary School. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Athens State University and my Master’s Degree from Jacksonville State University.

I began my career in education in Blount County at Locust Fork High School. After spending two years at Locust Fork, I transferred to Appalachian High School where I served as the Head Football Coach for three years and one year as the Assistant Principal. I have been married for nine years to my wife, Kayley, and we have two children. Our son, Braden, is six years old and is in first grade. Our daughter, Anne Marie, is two years old.

We at CES believe that by developing leadership qualities in all students, they will make a positive difference in our community. I will work diligently to lead our school in a positive direction, focusing on the development of leadership qualities in all of our students, so they will become difference makers.   

 

Sincerely,

Joseph Whited
