Assistant Principal

Hello! My name is Charllie Pope, I am proud to serve Cascade High as the assistant principal for my 15th year. Many people still refer to me as "Coach Pope" because I am the former Head Boys Basketball Coach at Cascade High School. I am perfectly fine to be called by that name as well!

I was born in 1972 here in Bedford County. I graduated from Community in 1990 and enrolled that fall at Martin Methodist College, located in Pulaski Tennessee and earned an Associate's Degree in Psychology in the spring of 1992. In 1995 I was a member of the first four-year graduating class at Martin Methodist College with a bachelor's degree in Human Services. I earned my Masters degree in school counseling from Middle Tennessee State University in 2002. I recently completed my Education Specialists degree at Tennessee Tech University.

I played basketball and baseball in high school. I see the value in athletics and how it can be a motivator for students to succeed in the classroom and stay out of trouble. I wanted to take that vision into the coaching profession and it worked for me for over 20 years between college (12 years) and high school (8 years). I believe coaching and counseling can go hand in hand because both are about empowering people to be successful!

Personally, I am married to Cindy and we have two daughters, Addison and Emma. We currently live in Shelbyville.
