Mr. Mike Swain

HJM Assistant Principal

          Hello Warcub Nation. I am excited to begin another year at HJM. This is my third year at HJM and my 21st year in education. I am a graduate of New Bern High, Craven Community College, East Carolina University, and Gardner-Webb. My wife, Necia, is also a Craven County School employee and we have three wonderful kids. Besides being an educator, I am also Pastor of Vanceboro Christian Church and enjoy spending time with my church family. In my spare time I enjoy sports, fishing, working in the yard, and visiting historical sites. My family also loves visiting the Outer Banks and the North Carolina Mountains. I believe that all young people can learn if given the opportunity and I am looking forward to a wonderful year at HJM.
