Ligon began as a High School in 1953 that provided a high quality education to African American students. The school was given it's name after John W. Ligon (1869-1925), pictured left, who was an influential leader in the African American community. During his lifetime Ligon worked as both a pastor and school principal. In the 1980's Ligon was converted to a Middle School and eventually became a Magnet school that attracks a variety of students from all over Wake County.
About Mr. Keating
Welcome students, parents/guardians to Ligon! This will be my fifth year at Ligon and I look forward to an exciting 2016-2017 school year. I began my teaching career at Hertford County Public Schools and currently hold a Masters' of Science degree and a Bachelors' of Arts degree in teaching. Besides teaching, I thoroughly enjoy athletics and was the assistant football coach for the Little Blues in 2013-2014. Furthermore, I played hockey through college, and before moving to North Carolina I was an assistant hockey coach for the 5th ranked varsity hockey program in my home state of New York. I hope this provides some background information about me and I look forward to working with you this school year!
