Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Katie Applewhite

Hello and Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!!! My name is Katie Applewhite and I will be your son or daughter's World History teacher. I have been at Petal High School since January of 2018 and I feel so blessed to work at Mississippi's #1 School District. I have lived in Purvis for over 13 years but am originally from D'Iberville. I am married with two children, Jordyn and Landon, and my third baby is our German Shepard Macy. Some things I enjoy doing in life are kayaking, fishing, and camping with my family and also, because of the corona break, I have found gardening as a new hobby. I graduated from USM with a degree in History and Secondary Education and am a strong believer in the "you can't know where your going if you don't know where you've been" mentality.  I am so excited to get to know all my students and parents, so please feel free to reach out at any time through email or call the school 601-583-3538 and use ext 4139.
