About our Principal
As a Wilmington native, Jackson Norvell takes great pride in being a product of New Hanover County Schools and he is highly committed to the continued betterment of our school system. Additionally and most importantly, Mr. Norvell is honored, humbled, and thrilled to have found his way to the helm of Wrightsville Beach Elementary.
Mr. Norvell received his Bachelors in Music Education and taught instrumental music for eight years before deciding to pursue school administration. A North Carolina Principal Fellow, Norvell received his Master of School Administration from The University of North Carolina at Wilmington in 2008 and has since held administrative appointments at the elementary, middle, and high school level.
Mr. Norvell plans to honor the traditions established at WBS, and to work closely with students, teachers, staff, families, and community partners to ensure that the positive momentum established by his predecessors continues.
