Whitlow Elementary opened in 2009 with 1,000 students from Cumming, Shiloh Point and Vickery Creek Elementary Schools. Dr. Lynne Castleberry is the school’s first principal. A portion of the school land was donated by the Whitlow family. The school is named after the late Mr. George W. Whitlow, who had a retirement home on the parcel of land. Mr. Whitlow served his country in the United States Navy and played for the St. Louis Cardinals. His family made the land donation to serve as a reminder for Mr. Whitlow’s love of his land and his love of children.
