Mr. Scott Herron

President and CEO

Mr. Herron graduated high school from NCC, and says that his appreciation for how NCC shaped his character and intellect is what inspired him to return to his Alma Mater as the school president. Mr. Herron has served at NCC since 2009, and feels tremendously blessed to be able to work alongside the talented staff of NCC as well as the student body, parents of students, and the community at large.

Mr. Herron graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Economics from Huntington University in Indiana, and spent the subsequent years in the United States where he became one of the executives with the American Red Cross as well as an international finance broker with Charles Schwab.

Mr. Herron shares that one of the most rewarding parts of his job at NCC is being able to interact with students—on student camping trips, at student athletic competitions, or just over dinner together in the dining hall. Mr. Herron says, “It is my privilege to be able to help the students of NCC realize the incredible plan that God has for each of their lives. All of us at NCC take very seriously our role in helping our students reach their potential.”
