Mr. James (Craig) Whitaker

 I am a graduate of North Carolina State University where I studied Pre-Veterinary Medicine and earned a BS degree in Zoology.  I also hold an MS degree in National Security Strategy.  Perhaps more importantly, I have over 30 years of experience as a U.S. Navy Officer and Aviator applying the principles of Science that we will be studying this year.  I hope to make it interesting and to demonstrate why and how these principles are relevent to you and your future. I've also taught Navy Junior ROTC in Johnston County, so many students know me as "Captain."  Welcome Aboard!
