The Wake County school system is losing one of its principals to the Chapel Hill-Carrboro school system.
In a press release today, Chapel Hill-Carrboro announced that Lewis "Drew" Ware has been named the new principal of Estes Hill Elementary School. Ware has been principal of Root Elementary School in Raleigh since 2009.
In the press release, Chapel Hill-Carrboro Superintendent Thomas Forcella noted that Root is a STEM school. Forcella said Ware's experience with STEM "will be a great benefit, for not only the school, but the entire district."
As is standard in principal contracts, Ware can't leave immediately. He'll start his new job in March.
