Jason Cranford

Hello, my name is Jason Cranford, and I am very proud to serve as Assistant Principal at North Lincoln High School. I am entering my 14th year in education. I am a graduate of Lincolnton High School and UNC-Charlotte. I served for 5 years as a Math/Science Teacher at Kings Mountain Middle School in Cleveland County. I was honored to be a participant in Cohort 22 of the NC Principal Fellows Program in Chapel Hill, NC as well. I have served as an Assistant Principal for 1 year at Shelby Intermediate School in Cleveland County, 2 years at North Lincoln Middle School, 3 years as Assistant Principal at Catawba Springs Elementary School, and most recently Assistant Principal here at NLHS. I am honored to be able to serve the student body, staff, and North Lincoln community as Assistant Principal. I have been married to my wife Anna now for 17 years, and we have three boys: Noah 15; Tucker 13; and Jacob 9. I am humbled and honored to serve the Knights family, and know that the 23-24 school year will be outstanding! We are #unknighted. Go Knights!
