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 graduated from East Carolina in 2011 with a degree in Health Prevention and Promotion and have been an NC credentialed Emergency Care Technician since 2009. I have had 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 relations 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 always striving to provide students and families with exemplary service. In most cases, school bus transportation is essential for many students to access a quality education. In order to meet our daily goal, it is necessary to implement change that enhances and improves our overall operation. As we prepare for the 2022-2023 school year, JCPS Transportation Services and School Nutrition will be hosting a Summer Information Fair at each high school.
Our district is launching a new portion of our website to further communicate bus delays and replacements with our families. We encourage those who have a student who utilizes our transportation to get to or from school to visit www.johnston.k12.nc.us/busdelays for updates on our school bus routes beginning Tuesday, January 18.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the 2022 Johnston County Public Schools salary schedule at their regularly scheduled Dec. 14 meeting.
