Mr. Matt Hovis

It is my privilege to serve the students, staff, and community of Lincolnton High School as the new Assistant Principal.  I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics Education from NC State University and received my Master's in Educational Leadership from High Point University. The majority of my career has been at Lincolnton Middle School as a teacher, coach, and athletic director.


Family is an integral part of my life and a source of support. My wife, Joanna, is a CTE teacher at Lincolnton Middle School, and we have three children; Maddox, Lilly Kate, and Hayes. We love spending time at the beach, playing outside, and cheering on the NC State Wolfpack.

I believe that the success of students comes from fostering a safe learning environment through the classroom community and building relationships, and I am excited to join the Lincolnton High School staff.
