Welcome to Crawford County Elementary School, home of the Eagles!
My name is Paris Raines, and it is my pleasure to serve as the principal of Crawford County Elementary School. I am very proud of my long career in education with all of my 26 years serving as a teacher, coach, Assistant Principal, and Principal in the same school system that I graduated from.
I graduated from Crawford County High School in 1986. I received my B.A. in Business Administration in 1991 from Fort Valley State University. I am especially proud of my ROTC participation. I was commissioned as an Army Officer in 1990 and served 8 years in the Army National Guard/Reserves. I received my Master’s degree in Science with a concentration in Middle Grades Education from Fort Valley State University in 1994, and I received an Educational Specialist Degree in Leadership from Troy State University in 2006.
I am married and have one child. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and attending all types of athletic events.
