Catawba News

From the Principal

  • Mr. Sigmon My name is J. R. Sigmon and I am so excited to be joining the Catawba Elementary family. Everyone has been so welcoming and I appreciate all of the encouraging words. I am a native of Catawba County. I was born and raised in the Vale community, where I attended Banoak Elementary, Blackburn Middle, and graduated from Fred T. Foard High School. I received a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and a master’s degree is school administration from Appalachian State University. I began my teaching career at Banoak Elementary, where I taught 5th & 6th grades for 8 years. I then had the opportunity to become the assistant principal at Maiden Elementary in 2007, where I remained until accepting the principalship here at Catawba Elementary.

    My wife, Olivia, and I live in the Newton area, with our dog, Jazzy. We love to travel, our favorite place to visit is always the beach. I also enjoy watching Tarheel basketball and Panthers football. I am anxious to meet each and every one of the students at Catawba Elementary and begin developing relationships with the families in the community. I am very proud to be a part of the Catawba community and look forward to continuing the tradition of success.
