Ms. Niena Varney

I am a transplanted yankee blooming in Benson.  I have decided that who you are is not always where you come from.  I was born and raised in Maine and moved to NC in 1995. We have lived, worked, played and ate in Benson ever since and I have loved every minute of it.  

I received my GED with honors in 2002 from JCC.  I had the 3rd highest score in the state for that year.  I am proud to own that recognition.  I graduated high honors from JCC with my Associates in Arts in 2011.  My crowning moment happened in 2014 when I graduated of East Carolina University with certification areas in Language Arts, Science and Social Studies.  

I have 4 sons ages 17-24.  They build a beautiful and chaotic life for me and I wouldn't have it any other way.  I love my dog, my cats, Patriot Football, reading Young Adult Fiction novels and Big Brother!  

  • Well, folks, IT IS FINALLY SUMMER!  Enjoy the rest and adventure that the next few weeks will offer!  We will be back to the grind of learning very soon, I hope.  Thank you to all my students and parents for a great 19-20 year.  It was a hard one for most of us, but we did it!

  • A Commitment to Solidarity, Peace, and Acceptance

    Johnston County Public Schools is in the business of providing a holistic educational experience that affirms and prepares our students for successful lives by teaching not only academic disciplines but how to treat one another. We are aware of recent social media posts and other unacceptable actions that have brought attention to racial and political insensitivity, which this school district does not condone.
