He is committed to building upon the tradition of excellence that Shuford Elementary School enjoys. We look forward to seeing the school continue to flourish under his leadership.” Mr. Tharpe shares: “Shuford Elementary is a special place. The tradition of academic excellence, family atmosphere, and student success has been a staple in the Conover community and our school system. I am excited and extremely grateful to be joining a staff dedicated to serving students, their families, and the community.” Mr. Tharpe is married to Katie Tharpe, a teacher at Mill Creek Middle School, and has a daughter, Koley Tharpe. Mr. Tharpe looks forward to getting to know the Shuford Elementary School community in the coming days.
