Mr. Larry Minton


My name is Larry Minton and I am from Granite Falls, North Carolina. Growing up in Caldwell County, I attended Granite Falls Elementary School, Granite Falls Middle School, and Caldwell Early College High School. As an alumni of CECHS (2018), I know of the impact that our school has on students and the community. As a teacher at CECHS, I hope to be able to help prepare students for "college, career, and life." 

As a young student in 10th grade, I developed a love for history and knowledge. Pursuing a degree in history education, I attended Appalachian State University where I received a bachelors degree in history, social studies education. After graduating from Appalachian, I received my teaching certificate in both middle grades and secondary social studies education. 

Outside of school, I love to spend time with my family and friends. You can usually find me in Boone, North Carolina where I love to visit local restaurants or ride the historic Blue Ridge Parkway. No matter what, you can always count that Cooper, my pet dog won't be too far behind.
