Rocky Hill principal returns from year deployment in Afghanistan

Rocky Hill principal returns from year deployment in Afghanistan

From the battlefield to the classroom, a Knox County principal returned from Afghanistan this summer to take the helm back at Rocky Hill Elementary School.

Cory Smith says his experience overseas has prepared him for eight hours a day with hundreds of energetic children.

Smith was called to active duty last May and returned home this Mother's Day.

Prior to that, he was the principal at Rocky Hill since 2006. He had to take a year off of work and family to serve our country in Afghanistan.

This summer, Jeff Joslin made it to the big screen.

"I play Tyler Perry's boss. I'm a federal prosecutor."

You could say he's come a long way from Cedar Bluff Elementary.

"We did the play "Rumpelstiltskin" and I had one line."

That was Joslin's first brush with acting, but, back then, he was more interested in sports.

"At age 6, I started playing football and that's all I wanted to do. I wanted to be a professional athlete."
