The Wake County school board appointed a new principal tonight to lead Carpenter Elementary School in Cary.
April Hill, an assistant principal at Durant Road Elementary School, will be paid $80,857 a year to lead Carpenter. She's been at Durant Road since 2010 and before that spent five years as an assistant principal at Green Hope Elementary.
Hill won't start at Carpenter until Dec. 3 so Freda Cole will serve as interim principal. Cole was principal at Forest Pines Elementary until she retired earlier this year.
