Former principal convicted of assaulting student

Former Carver Elementary Principal Allison Baker was convicted earlier this month of the misdemeanor charge of assaulting a child under 12.

Wake District Court Jacqueline Brewer found her guilty after a trial. Baker received a 45-day suspended sentence and 12 months of unsupervised probation.

Baker is appealing the case to Wake Superior Court.

Baker had resigned June 1 after having been suspended by the school system for "negative interaction with a student."

New Apex Middle principal named

Only one new principal appointment tonight.

Camille Hedrick was named principal of Apex Middle School at a salary of $112,286. She replaces Timothy Lee Locklair, who was recently named principal of Holly Springs High.

Hedrick has been an assistant principal at Lufkin Road Middle School since 2006. She's also married to James Hedrick, principal of Green Hope High School.

Since I was out on July 21, I'll also post those principal changes too.
