Norman Hicks

Class of 1957




I was born in Hicksville, went to East Street School , then onto the Junior High and finally to the High School.  I graduated with the class of 1957, the second class to graduate from the new building on Division Ave. The brand new high school opened in September of 1955.

After graduation, I was accepted at Hofstra and received my Bachelor of Science degree in economics and business. I continued my education attending the University of Maryland where I earned a PH. D. in economics in 1968.

I married Ann Marie Wysocki who hails from Plains, Pennsylvania . We spent two years in Ghana in West Africa , where I worked for USAID. After Ghana I joined the World Bank and worked 33 years for them in Washington , D.C.

I retired in 2006 but still work as a consultant for the World Bank, and teach part time at George Washington University .  I live with my wife in Falls Church Va. We have four adult children, and seven grandchildren.
