My name is Keith Styles.  I am a McDowell County native.  I attended Clinchfield and Eastfield elementary schools, and then went on to East McDowell Junior High School.  I graduated from McDowell High School in 1987.  I then attended Appalachian State University on a N.C. Teaching Fellows Scholarship.  I graduated from Appalachian State in 1992.  I began my teaching career at McDowell High School in the fall of 1992 where I have taught and coached ever since.  Over the last 23 years, I have taught world history, U.S. history, civics and economics, sociology, psychology, A.P. European history and most recently health and physical education.  I have been on the football staff at McDowell High School for the majority of my 23 years where I now serve as Defensive Coordinator.  I have been married to my wife Allison for 20 years and we are the proud parents of two beautiful daughters, Kassie and Piper.
