Clarke named BHS assistant principal / August 14, 2019
Students at Bluestone High School were greeted by a new assistant principal on Monday, their first day back to school for the 2019-20 school year. Long time economics, marketing and DECA teacher Chris Clarke has stepped into the role that was filled last year on an interim basis by James Fowlkes.

He joins BHS Principal Magie Wilkerson and Assistant Principal Velva Kindley as the leadership team for the high school.

Clarke was named to the position Monday, Aug. 5 at a special called meeting of the School Board. He said he is “excited for the opportunity to serve Bluestone High School in this new capacity. This is home for me, and we have great students and a great staff hers.”

After graduating from Bluestone High School in 2001, Clarke earned a bachelors degree in Business Management Science from Averett University in 2005. That same year he returned to the area and began teaching at Mecklenburg County Public Schools.

He earned his Master of Business Administration from Florida State University in 2017, graduating among the top of his class, and received his endorsement in Educational Leadership from Longwood University earlier this year.

When not teaching, Clarke serves as a member of the Clarksville Town Council, a position he has held since 2010. In 2017 he founded an online employment marketplace for jobseekers.
