Mr. James Norris, MBA

Welcome back student and parents. I hope all of you had a great summer. My name is James Norris and I am looking forward to an outstanding year. 

This is my fourth year teaching Business Courses and second year as the Varsity and Junior Varsity football wide receivers coach. Before I became a teacher, I spend 18 years serving in the greatest military in the world and was able to retire in 2014 as a Sergeant First Class (SFC). During my time in the military, I served in many capacities in the communications and information technology field. While I was in the military, I decided to go back to school and finish my degree and in 2012 I graduated from Campbell University with a BBA in Business Administration. After my retirement, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to go back to school and in 2016 I graduated from Campbell University with my Masters in Business Administration (MBA). Also in 2016, I completed the state requirements and obtained my Business Teaching Certification from N.C. State University. I currently reside in Benson NC with my wife, 2 kids, and 2 dogs.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me at any time. I hope you all have a great year.

Go Wildcats!!!!!!!
