Mrs. Amanda Pruitt, Principal


I am honored and humbled to serve as the principal of West Wilkes High School, where I am surrounded by great students, caring adults and supportive community members.  I have worked as a teacher and school administrator in three high schools during my 14 year tenure in education.  West Wilkes High School is a great place to serve.  Students and staff members are dedicated to success inside the school building and in the community. 


A little about myself, I am happily married to my husband Timothy, of almost 18 years.  We have three children—a son, Corban, a daughter, Caydence and we are currently in the process of adopting our third child, Justin.  We enjoy spending time together as a family and are excited to continue our journey alongside the West Wilkes family as well. 


I am grateful for the opportunity to see our students reach new heights and succeed every day.  We want to share these successes with the West Wilkes community.  Please follow us on Twitter (@WestWilkesHS), like us on Facebook (West Wilkes High School) and check our website often for upcoming events and important information.  Thank you for your continued support of the Blackhawks.  I am excited about all we will accomplish together in the year ahead by working hard and staying focused on our goals.
