Meet Our School Nurse

Mary Elaine Knight

Welcome to Sherrills Ford Elementary! I am Mary Elaine Knight, school health nurse for Sherrills Ford Elementary and Balls Creek Elementary.

I graduated from UNC Chapel Hill in 2003 from UNC School of Nursing. Occasionally, my Tarheel Blue self and Wolfpack Red husband clash!

I spent the first five years of my career in ICU/CCU/trauma environments. The past ten years, I have spent the majority of my time in case management and school health. I am nationally certified in school health and currently serve on the Executive Board for the School Nurses of NC Association. 

I am incredibly lucky to be included in the Sherrills Ford family and hope that my role can assist in assuring your child and family's experience at SFES is the best and healthiest possible. 

If I am not at school, where am I? You can find me chasing two boys, two dogs, three cats, and a fish. Or you might find us camping, antiquing, or anything related to Scouting.

Do you have a health question or concern? Please let me know. For non-urgent things, please use my email. For urgent issues, call the school at 828.478.2662.
