She not only is dedicated to ensuring students are challenged to do their very best academically but also that they are good citizens of the world and demonstrate character and leadership skills that will help them grow into successful adults. She believes in the students and staff and empowers them to grow to become better every day. Mrs. Whitmire has earned an Ed.S in Administration and Leadership
and a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction, both from Liberty University, as well as a Bachelors of Arts degree from Limestone College in Elementary Education.
