Mr. Chris Mills feels honored to have been able to serve the students, staff, and families of Gaston County Schools for 19 years. He believes that school is a place where students, parents, and staff learn and grow together to build a stronger community. School serves as a place where students learn skills to prepare them for beyond their educational career, and he feels that it is the school’s purpose to help each student to achieve their individual best.|
