This year begins my 29th year in education and my first year back in Marengo County Schools. I am honored to be a part of this district and hope to be an asset for the teachers and students of this county.
I grew up in Vernon, Alabama, and graduated in 1988 from Lamar County High School. I am married to Wendy Walters Norton and we have one son, Marcus Gray and one daughter, Mary Evelyn. When not at school I enjoy reading, cooking, working in the yard, and traveling.

My name is Luke Hinson. This is my first year with the Marengo County Schools as a Computer/Network Technician. I am grateful for this opportunity to work in the technology field; it has been a lifelong passion of mine.
I grew up in Grove Hill, Alabama and graduated from Clarke County High School in 2006. Afterwards, I attended ITT Technical Institute in Bessemer, Alabama with a concentration in Computer Electronics Engineering Technology. I worked as an Engineering Assistant for the Alabama Department of Transportation for six years before I decided to reenter the IT field. Through a lot of hard work, I obtained my CompTIA A+ certification to become a certified IT Technician.
I live in Grove Hill with my lovely wife, Alicia. We are currently expecting our first child. Alicia is a STEM certified, TEAMS science teacher at my high school alma mater. In my spare time you can find me cooking up some Cajun cuisine or grilling on the back porch, catching a few bass, or playing on my PS5. I also love to travel and play drums at our church.
Again, I appreciate the chance to work with the faculty, staff, and students of Marengo County. My goal is to keep each of you connected to the digital world in a productive and safe way.
