Dr. Nate McLean

I moved from Michigan to Catawba County to teach biology and coach football in 2006 at Newton-Conover High School. Since then, I have served in both Lincoln and Catawba Counties as a building-level administrator, and as a district leader in the Exceptional Children’s Department. In addition, I have earned a Master’s Degree in School Administration from Western Carolina and a Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

I have been married to my wife Andrea since 2007 and we have two children, Addison and Bryson. We enjoy working on our small family farm, hunting, fishing, and being outdoors.

 I look forward to leading and learning together with the ELHS Community.
