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 fourteenth 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 an important and 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 2023-2024 school year and having the opportunity to serve the students and families within my own community.


Thank you, 
Kellie C. Dellinger
