Mark Shinkaruk, Principal
The 2019-2020 school year will mark my eighth year as a school principal and my second year as principal of Mount Mourne School. I am committed to ensuring we continue the history of excellence at MMS by providing each child with a safe, challenging and enjoyable educational experience.
Prior to MMS, I served as principal of Lake Norman Elementary, the assistant principal at Coddle Creek Elementary and a science teacher at Troutman Middle School. I'm a graduate of UNC-Charlotte where I completed my Master’s Degree in School Administration. I also hold a Bachelor's Degree (Elementary Education) from Northland College, a small liberal arts school in Ashland, Wisconsin. Iredell County is home to me. I am a graduate of Statesville High School.
I currently reside in Mooresville with my wife, Jennie, and our daughter, Nora. When I'm not spending time with my family, I also enjoy basketball, golfing, boating, fishing and grilling.
