Meet Our Principal - David Averette

  • It is such a privilege to be a part of the Franklin County Schools system, and I am blessed to be serving in my first year as principal of Franklinton Middle School.  My career in education began as a teacher at Cedar Creek Middle School in 2000, and has since included administrative roles as the assistant principal at Cedar Creek (1 year), Louisburg Elementary (2 years), and Franklinton High School (10 years).    I am honored to lead along with others as we seek to impact the lives of young people in such a noble calling.  I hold an Associate of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, a Bachelor of Arts in religion from the Divinity School of Campbell University, and a Master of School Administration from North Carolina State University.  I am married to Dottie Averette, who recently retired from FCS after teaching nearly thirty years in our district. We have two daughters and a son-in-law who also teach in Franklin County Schools. We are also the proud Honey and Pop-Pop of a grandson who at the time of this posting is 14 months old.  My love for the Franklinton, Franklin County community extends into other areas of service that provide opportunities to establish meaningful relationships with so many people.  So grateful to serve here at FMS.
