My name is Kathryn Alford and I am one of the Health Science educators here at CHHS. I am so excited to be a Pirate again! I graduate from East Carolina in 2011 with a degree in Health Prevention and Promotion and have been a NC crediantialed Emergency Care Technician since 2009. I have have several roles in the health care community over the years including Critical Care Emergency Technician and Optometric Technician. I enjoy going the extra mile to make sure that everyone is taken care with a smile.
I have always been interested in teaching after my experiences with youth in my community through public relation events with EMS as well as coaching youth softball here in Corinth-Holders. I am excited to include real life scenarios into my lessons and hope to get my students excited about a future career in health care.
I am originally from Enfield, NC and was raised with the value of helping others in the community. I moved to Wendell in September of 2012, when I married my husband. I enjoy spending time at home with Josh and our little girl and three dogs, as well as traveling back home to my family's farm.

Johnston County Public Schools is in the business of providing a holistic educational experience that affirms and prepares our students for successful lives by teaching not only academic disciplines but how to treat one another. We are aware of recent social media posts and other unacceptable actions that have brought attention to racial and political insensitivity, which this school district does not condone.
