     Dr. Jarrod Pendergraft 



    My name is Jarrod Pendergraft and this is my 14th year in education. I began my career in education at Halls Middle school teaching computer and 8th grade social studies. This is my 5th year in administration and my 2nd year at Northwest Middle School, as one of the 7th grade assistant principals. I am graduate of Maryville College and a three-time graduate of Lincoln Memorial University, where I completed my doctorate in December 2021. My wife, Melanie, is also an employee with Knox County Schools and works in the Vision department. I look forward to this school year and making a positive impact on our students and our community!
