Shane Gardner, Principal

It is my honor and privilege to serve as the principal of Draughn High School. This is my second year as the principal here at Draughn High. Prior to coming here, I served as the principal of Salem Elementary School. I have been an assistant principal at Draughn High School, Patton High School, Freedom High School, and Salem Elementary. This is my eighth year in school administration. I taught social studies at Freedom High School for twelve years and have been a part of the Burke County School system since 1998.

I am a graduate of Appalachian State University with a Bachelor of Science in History, Secondary Education, a Master of Arts in Social Science, Education, and licensure in School Administration. I have been happily married for 22 years and we have two sons.

I look forward to serving you as we work toward our common goal of preparing your children and obtaining their high school diploma to pursue college and careers. If there is anything that we can do to better serve your children please reach out to us.
