Knighton has a Master of Public Administration from the University of Central Florida along with a Master of Divinity degree from Emory University. He is a credentialed manager of the International City/County Management Association, as well as a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners, the American Planning Association, and the Georgia Planning Association.
