Welcome Mrs. Sydnor-Waugh

Hello, North Elementary School Eagles and Families!  


My name is Nell Sydnor-Waugh, and I am so excited to serve as your Principal.  I have served Person County Schools in various capacities since 2005 (English Teacher, Learning Support Specialist, Assistant Principal, Principal, and Director).  Prior to that, I taught English and Social Studies at Lakeview Middle School in Greenville, SC and was an English teacher at Halifax County High School in South Boston, VA.  This is my 20th year as an educator! I graduated from James Madison University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and a minor in Secondary Education as well as a Master of Education degree in Administration and Supervision and an Education Specialist Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Liberty University. Currently, I reside in Virgilina with my husband, Troy, and my son, T.J.  We attend White Oak Fork Baptist Church.  


North’s mission is to inspire the North Elementary Community to Excellence! I look forward to building relationships with North Elementary School students and their families.  North has outstanding teachers and staff who are committed to helping each student reach new heights of excellence in their academics, attendance, behavior, and character. I hope to continue and expand our partnerships with various churches, businesses, and individuals.  


I cordially invite all parents/guardians, community leaders, and interested volunteers to attend a Meet & Greet with a light breakfast on Thursday, August 1st from 9:00-10:00am.  This is your opportunity to meet new and returning staff members, learn about initiatives for the upcoming school year,  and ask questions about the school. I hope to see you there!
