Mr. Joshua White
Hello W.B. Beam community, I am so excited to serve as your principal here in my native hometown of Cherryville. I know how strong these schools are and look forward to continuing that proud tradition we have here. After graduating from Cherryville High School in 2005, I attended UNC Charlotte where I graduated with a degree in history and education in 2011. I stayed in Gaston County, teaching and coaching at Southwest Middle and W.C. Friday Middle for 5 years before graduating with my Masters in Educational Leadership from Appalachian State University in 2018. I am currently continuing my education, attending Liberty University and completing my doctoral degree in educational Leadership. After returning to Southwest Middle as assistant principal for four years, I was called back home to be your principal here at W.B. Beam Intermediate. My wife Betsy and I live in Gastonia with our 5-year-old daughter Kassie. I enjoy spending time with my family and being active in our church, as well as reading and golfing. I am an avid sports fan and love cheering on the Mountaineers, Braves, Gamecocks, and Packers. I know this school year will be great and I can't wait to see you in August!
