Mrs. Kellie Dellinger

Hello, my name is Kellie Dellinger and I am honored to serve as the Principal of Union Elementary.  I am currently in my twelfth year of education.  I graduated from West Lincoln High School before attending Appalachian State University where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education.  I began my teaching career in the elementary classroom. During my teaching experience, I received my Master of Education Degree in Administration and Supervision from Liberty University.  My husband Ruskin and I have two precious boys Clint and Clay and reside in Cat Square.

The elementary school years are important and a critical time for students.  What happens during these years will have a lasting impression on their growth and achievement.  My goal as Principal is to provide leadership that will foster a school environment that is safe and respectable allowing your children to receive an education that prepares them to be college and career ready.  I am confident that Union Elementary is the best school in Lincoln County and a place where our students can learn and grow academically and socially.


I look forward to the 2021-2022 school year and having the opportunity to serve the students and families within my own community.


Thank you, 
Kellie C. Dellinger
