Mrs. Ashley Short, Principal
I joined Cabarrus County Schools as a teacher at Concord Middle School in 2006. I also worked at Mount Pleasant Middle School as a teacher before moving to Central Cabarrus High School as the instructional technology facilitator in 2012. I joined the administrative team at C.C. Griffin Middle School in 2017 as an Assistant Principal and then joined the administrative team at Central Cabarrus High School. I earned a Bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and a Master’s degree from East Carolina University. My passion is curriculum and instruction and technology integration.
I look forward to working with CVA students, parents, and staff!
