Principal's Bio


Welcome to Braxton Craven Middle School!

I am honored to take on the role as Principal of Braxton Craven, and I look forward to working with the students, staff, parents, and community members that make Braxton Craven such a wonderful place to be! 


I am a product of the Randolph County School System as I graduated from Southwestern Randolph High School in 2002. After high school, I attended Wake Forest University and graduated with a BA in Communication in 2006. At Liberty University, I obtained my M.Ed. in Administration and Supervision in 2011, Ed.S. in Educational Leadership in 2012, and Ed.D. in Educational Leadership in 2017.


I am currently in my 9th year in education. My first five years were spent at Randleman Middle School where I served in various roles which included: Student Advocate, Math Teacher, AVID Elective Teacher, and Coach in softball, basketball, and volleyball. I had the privilege of serving three years as Assistant Principal; my first year was at Eastern Randolph High School while the past two were at Randleman Middle. 

About Me

I have an amazing wife and daughter. I enjoy spending time with my family along with playing basketball and tennis. I also enjoy watching and attending Wake Forest sporting events.

I appreciate your support and if you ever have any questions, concerns, or would like to set up a meeting, please contact me via email at dcross@randolph.k12.nc.us or by phone at 336-431-4078.  I look forward to a successful 2017-2018 school year!
