Meet the Principal

High school principal Melony Cargill smiles during the district's return-to-school night.

Meloney Cargill grew up in Detroit, Michigan where she graduated from Cass Technical High School, and majored in Performing Arts. After graduating from Cass Tech, she discovered that she wanted to pursue a degree in education. She obtained her BA from Michigan State University and both her Masters in Reading and Language, and her Education Specialist Degrees from Oakland University.

She began her teaching career at Clintondale High School, where she taught English, Japanese, and Leadership for 15 years. She was also a class adviser, World Language Club adviser, and Student Council adviser, and served on the School Improvement Committee. Meloney was also nominated for the WDIV Teacher of the Year in 2000 and 2005. She was also the recipient of the Macomb Area Conference Student Activities Commission Award and Who’s Who.

Currently, Meloney is the principal at Clintondale High School, where they have been recognized as the first Flipped School. In addition, Meloney has served as a keynote speaker at the 10th World Conference on Computers in Education in Poland; and as a presenter at the Flip Teaching Conference, the International Society for Technology in Education Conference, and the Great Lakes Bay Summer Leadership Academy.

The thing that Meloney loves most about working in the Clintondale Community School District is the sense of family. Coming from a larger school district, where one never met the principal or the superintendent has helped her to appreciate the uniqueness of her district. She appreciates getting to know the families, the students, and the long standing members of the community.

Her philosophy on education is simply this: she believes an effective administrator has to be passionate about education, passionate about the future of children, never stops being a teacher, and never stops being a student.

Meloney has been married to her husband, Ronald Cargill since 1995. They have a son, Kendall, who is a 2021 Clintondale alumnus.
