Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Cates


I am a ND alum, class of 2007.  I spent 6 years here at NDJS high school from 2012-2018 teaching science and history and coaching multiple sports.  I took a break to work for NC Farm Bureau as an insurance agent for the past four and a half years.  I am glad to be back at North Duplin.  I graduated in 2011 from Campbell University with a Bachelor's in Business Administration in Trust and Wealth Management.  Between my background from my undergrad degree and the experience I've gained in the field of insurance over the past 4+ years, I feel like I am able to bring a wealth of knowledge to these students and am looking forward to see how my hard work and motivation pays off when I see them go onto be knowledgable and productive members of society.
