Mrs. Emily Thornton
My name is Emily Westbrook Thornton and I am a School Counselor at Four Oaks Elementary. I received my undergraduate and graduate degrees from Campbell University and I have been employed with Johnston County Public Schools for the last 14 years.
My goal is to support students emotionally, academically, & socially while helping to foster their flame for learning!
If you are seeking an appointment to see the school counselor, please let me know! I typically have time to see students and parents throughout the day and look forward to helping you in any way I can.
At this time, all traditional high school graduations are still planned for May 29. Graduation ceremonies for Johnston County Early College Academy and Johnston County Career and Technical Leadership Academy will now take place on May 16th, rather than the original date of May 15th.
The Johnston County Board of Education will hold a budget work session on Tuesday, April 27. The meeting will begin at 5:00 p.m. and be held in the Evander Simpson Building in Smithfield.
