Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Jared Worthington
My name is Mr. Jared Worthington and I am the principal of Marvin Elementary School in Union County Public Schools. I have more than 12 years of experience in the education field, serving both public schools and community organizations.
Prior to coming to UCPS, I served as the principal of Edgewood Elementary School in Whiteville, NC for four years. During that time, I worked with an amazing staff to create a culture and climate that produced success in our students while relying on the expertise and skills of our teachers and school leaders. It is my belief that school administrators are more than just leaders in the school. They are community members who remove barriers for student success and educational growth.
Beginning as a high school history teacher, I taught in both middle and high schools for the Public Schools of Robeson County, also serving as either a head or assistant coach in baseball, basketball, football and girls volleyball. I also served as the assistant principal for both Edgewood Elementary School and Whiteville High School during my seven years with Whiteville City Schools.
I received my bachelor’s degree in Social Studies Education and my Master’s degree in School Administration from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. Together with my wonderful wife, Katie, we have two children, Camden, age 4 and Vivian, 4 months.
