​East Mecklenburg High School - Teacher of the Year

Knowlton 2 TOY.jpg

Chief Ineal Knowton, Jr.

After serving 25 years in the United States Air Force, I joined the East Meck Team in June 2011.  I am a native of West Helena, Arkansas and received my undergraduate degree from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, IL.   Currently, I am working on my Master's Degree at Wingate University.  

What I truly enjoy about being at East is teaching and mentoring the students in the JROTC program and making myself available to mentor all the other students here at the school.  This year I have been active in various areas of the school.  In October 2016, I was honored to be selected as Staff Member of the Month.  My activities outside of JROTC has been driving the bus for the sports teams, being a part of the Global Immersion Steering Team, which lead the way for the school becoming the first high school in North Carolina to be certified Global Ready, and being a committee member of ASTI which validates grant requests from the teachers and students at East Meck. In the local community, I currently serve as Chairperson on the State Employee's Credit Union Advisory Board.
