Mrs. Donna Digby

I am an English teacher here at CHS, with most of my experience in English II and AP Language and Composition.  I have been teaching for 25 years and this is my 11th year at CHS.  I am a native North Carolinian, who has lived in the east, the mountains, and now central NC.  I am a proud graduate of Appalachian State University and East Carolina University.  I live in Clayton with my husband, Scott and two lovely daughters, Gwen and Allison.  I love to read, run, ski, be at the beach or in the mountains, watch my girls play soccer, swim, and run, cheer for the Panthers and Blue Devils, travel, and shop.
