Heather Cartwright
Heather Cartwright, Rankin Principal, TPSD Administrator of the year

The Tupelo Public School District has fostered my love of teaching, leading, and serving. Not only am I fortunate enough to work in a district that challenges me daily to be my best for my teachers and students, but I trust this district with my most important assets, my two children! It is truly an honor to be a part of something as special as the Tupelo Public School district.

“TPSD is where I found my calling and purpose in life. It is a place where I have had the privilege of having so many meaningful relationships and experiences that have shaped who I am today. Also a place that has loved and nurtured my own two children. I cannot imagine where I would be today without the students and staff of TPSD and for that I am forever grateful.”

"I am pawsitive that TPSD is the most pawsome school! The teachers and students are rebarkable. I am barking it from the wooftops, TPSD is the best!"

It is the place I made my first friends, found new passions for athletics and academics, and connected with the most amazing people and mentors. TPSD has been a pillar that has helped shape me into the person I am today and the person I will be in the future!”

Jack Reed Jr., TPSD Alumni

I was very fortunate to grow up in a great Tupelo Public School system! Caring, bright teachers gave me an excellent preparation for college and law school. Both our son and daughter had excellent educational opportunities in the TPSD as well.

My vision is for TPSD to be one of the Top 10 Public School Systems in America. Our business and family is committed to do our part to make this a reality.
