• Hello, and welcome to the Palmetto Middle School website!

    My name is Dr. Rodney McCorkle, and I am enthusiastic to serve as your Assistant Principal for the 2022-2023 school year. This is my 2nd year as the AP of Palmetto, and it has been an absolute joy and honor to serve with our school leader, Dr. Regina Gilchrist. I take pride in assisting to ensure that the vision and mission of our school is carried out with fidelity. 

    I have received training and education at the following institutions of higher learning: a BA Degree from Belmont Abbey College, a Masters of Divinity Degree from Liberty University, a Masters of Educational Leadership from American College of Education, and a Doctor of Ministry Degree from Apex School of Theology. I have 4 years of classroom teaching experience: 1 year at Marlboro County High School, and 3 years at Johnakin Middle School.

    I fully believe that this 2022-2023 school year will be the absolute best year in the history of PMS. Our faculty and staff are prepared to provide our students with a high level of education. Again, I am honored to serve the children and families of PMS. I believe that something wonderful is about to happen in the life of every student that walks through our doors.
