In Memory

William Charlton

William Love Charlton, formerly of Goldsboro, died in Raleigh on October 21, 2019.

He moved back to Goldsboro in 1965 and began a long and distinguished career with the Goldsboro City Schools. He served as a principal in several different places including middle and elementary schools. He chose to spend most of his career in elementary schools because he wanted children to learn to love school through their first experiences.


You will be missed. You are embedded in our mind and heart.

Psalms 23: 4-6

"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You aniont my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surley goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever."
