Principal, Mr. Paul Wilson

Welcome to Martin's Creek Elementary/Middle School. I have spent 25 years in education as a teacher and principal. I graduated from Young Harris College with Highest Honors. I achieved a Bachelor's in Literature (Magna Cum Laude) and was the winner of the Bryan Award at the University of North Carolina Asheville. As a teacher, I achieved National Board Certification in Young Adult Literature and was honored to be named a two-time Teacher of the Year at Martin's Creek.
I obtained a Master's degree in School Administration and graduated 1st in my class at Western Carolina University. There I was an NC Principal Fellow and Winner of the Don Chalker Award for Excellence in Educational Leadership. I was also named Principal of the Year in 2015 and 2019.
Martin's Creek is a wonderful place to learn and grow. I have been truly blessed to have served as a teacher and principal here.
