Mr. Casey Oakes
Mr. Oakes is excited to begin his tenure as the principal of Norris Childers Elementary. I hold a BA - Music Education from Appalachian State University and a Masters of School Administration from UNC-Wilmington. Prior to this posting, I was the assistant principal at Lincolnton Middle School and taught at St. Stephens High School in Hickory.
I reside in Hickory with my wife, Lauren, and two children, Amelia and Sam. As a family, we love to travel and be outdoors. When we have the opportunity, you can find us on the local mountain bike trails.
I can't wait to work with and for the children of this community. We will truly become inspired, determined and unstoppable!
