Principal - Jennifer Blankenship

Welcome to Mt. Pleasant Elementary School. My name is Jennifer Blankenship. I am excited and honored to serve as your Principal again this year. I look forward to building relationships with the students, faculty, parents and community members in what is going to be the best year ever for MPES.

I am a Wilkes County native. I hold a B.S. in Special Education, a Masters in School Administration, and an Educational Specialist degree from Appalachian State University. I have sixteen years of teaching and administrative experience with Wilkes County Schools. In my leisure time I enjoy shopping, reading, and spending time with my husband, friends and four precious dogs.

I have a passion for our students and teachers and cannot imagine having a job any more fun or rewarding. I am dedicated to giving my very best to ensure that our Blue Hawk students are taught in a warm, nurturing and safe environment where each child may achieve success and strive for excellence. Educating our students is very much a team effort and I encourage you all to become involved in the wonderful things that are going on within our school. I am here to support you, so feel free to contact me if I can assist you in anyway.
