The East Wake High School of Health Science will need a new principal
The Wilmington Star-News is reporting that the Pender County school board voted today to hire Craig Baker as principal of Pender High School. Baker had been the principal of the School of Health Science and the campus manager of the four small schools that comprise East Wake High School in Wendell.
Baker had been principal of the School of Heath Science since 2005. Before then, he was an assistant principal at East Wake High from 2002 to 2005. He's a former teacher and athletic trainer at the high school.
Coincidentally or not, former Wake County Chief of Staff Terri Cobb is the superintendent of Pender County schools. Cobb had also been a principal at Lockhart Elementary School in Knightdale.
