Mr. James Norris, MBA
I am James Norris, Dean of Students and also the wide receivers coach for varsity and JV football. I am honored to be a part of the Trojan family and look forward to working with all of you this school year.
A little about me:
This is my 6th year teaching. Before coming to South Johnston, I was a Business Teacher at West Johnston and at Mcgess Middle School. While at West Johnston, I was the head JV Football Coach and also wide receivers coach for varsity and JV. Before I started teaching, I proudly served this country in the U.S. Army and was medically retired as a Sergeant First Class (SFC) after 18 years. I served in various leadership roles and in different specialties. For about the last 10 years of my military career, I served in the Information Technology (IT) field.
I currently live in Benson with my 2 kids, Kaylee and JT, and my lab Marshall.
