Eric Mitchell, Principal

Hello parents and students of Parker Middle School.  I am Principal Eric Mitchell. I am humbled and excited to join this school family.  Just a little about me.  I am a product of this school district, a graduate of Southern Nash High School.  I graduated from North Carolina A & T State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electronics.  I then began my teaching career in the Halifax County School district.  While teaching, I earned a Master in School Administration/Supervision from East Carolina University. I worked in that district for 12 and half years prior to joining Nash County Public Schools in an administrative role. My passion as Principal of Parker Middle School is working with students, staff, and parents to produce students that will reach their potential as citizens. I look forward to working with all stakeholders as we educate and shape young minds for the future.
