Titans in the News

Superintendent Mark Garrett is very happy to announce that McDowell native Edwin H. Spivey III will be the next principal of McDowell High School. The Board of Education approved Spivey this evening at its regularly scheduled meeting for July. “I’m honored to have the opportunity to come home to McDowell High School” said Spivey. He added “I know that we can achieve great things for the students of McDowell County.”
 
Spivey graduated from McDowell High in 1988. He then attended Appalachian State University and graduated in 1993 with a Bachelor of Science degree in History and a minor in Business Administration. Upon graduation he worked as a sales representative for copiers and other office equipment in the Asheville area. He began his education career in 1999 as a Social Studies teacher and Golf coach at McDowell HS. He earned his Masters of School Administration in 2002 from Western Carolina University. In 2005 he moved into administration as Assistant Principal at AC Reynolds HS in Buncombe County. He has served as the principal of Enka High School in Buncombe County since 2010.

Superintendent Garrett is confident that Mr. Spivey is the right fit for McDowell High. He stated, “Edwin has the experience and background that we need to move MHS forward. His passion for student learning and staff team building is obvious, and I am excited for the students, parents, and staff of MHS, as well as our entire MCS community.”

Including his time as a teacher, AP, and principal, Spivey has a total of 16 years as a high school educator. According to Garrett, Spivey will wrap up his duties at Enka and will assume his new role in a couple of weeks, “We anticipate Mr. Spivey being with us in early August.”
