Hello! My name is Whitney Butler, and I am entering my eighth year of teaching at Newport Grammar School. I have always been a life-long NGS Warrior! I graduated from Newport Grammar School in 2005, before going on to graduate from Cocke County High School in 2009. In 2013, I graduated from Lincoln Memorial University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. In 2018, I graduated from Carson-Newman University with a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. In 2019, I graduated from Lincoln Memorial University with an Education Specialist Degree in Instructional Leadership.   

 

During my senior year at Cocke County High School, I qualified to compete in the TSSAA State Tournament and was named as an All-State golfer.  While at LMU, I was a member of the Lady Railsplitters golf team. My senior season, I was named to the All-South Atlantic Conference golf team and voted Most Valuable Player. Golf has been a big part of my life, as I had much success on the course. 

 

In my spare time, I love to have fun with my friends and family, play golf, and travel! Most importantly, I love to play and spend time with my puppies, Disney and Lady!

      Weather Updates

       

      Please remember to check local media when the weather gets bad. There are times that we may dismiss school early. If so, you need to be aware of where to get this information. The Newport Plain Talk provides school closing updates on its Facebook page. The local radio stations are WNPC 92.9 FM & WLIK 1270 AM. We have an automated phone system that will also call to alert you about school closures and delays. Be sure that we have your current phone number so we can have it in our automated system.
