School is now in session! My name is Desarae Kirkpatrick, and I am thrilled to be a part of the Nebo community of learners. This will be my tenth year as a principal for McDowell County Schools and I am excited to join the staff at Nebo this coming year. I have enjoyed meeting families, students and other community members over the past weeks, and I'm looking forward to building relationships with you as we work collaboratively for our students. It's going to be a great year at Nebo, and I thank you for your support of our school.
