Mr. Lance Atkinson
Before I came to teaching I spent years as a firefighter and time working with North Carolina Emergency Management. With that said I am a certified North Carolina Firefighter I & II and hold other varying certificates in emergency management and incident planning. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Business and Economics with a Minor in History from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. During my undergraduate studies I was able to have an exhibit at the High Point History Museum based on my research and project I completed in my History of North Carolina class. Also, I was able to study abroad for international entrepreneurship at the Université catholique de Louvain in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. I then attended North Carolina State University and earned my Master of Arts in Teaching: Secondary Social Studies Degree.
I am a Johnston County local and native to the area. I graduated just down the road at West Johnston High School and would not want to be teaching in any other school district. I am extremely proud to teach and call Clayton High School my home. COMETS ALL IN!
