New principal for Davie High School

MOCKSVILLE ó Davie High School is getting a new principal.
Jeff Wallace, principal of Forbush High School in Yadkin County, will be making his way to Davie effective July 1. Wallace ó who has served as Forbush’s principal since 2004 ó comes highly recommended, with much educational experience, according to a spokesman for the Davie County Schools.
He replaces Cary Powers, who resigned about two weeks ago to become the assistant superintendent in Duplin County.
Before becoming principal at Forbush, Wallace served as assistant principal for two years. Prior to that, he was an In-school suspension coordinator and classroom teacher.
Wallace earned a master’s in school administration from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and a bachelor of science degree from Appalachian State University. In 2007, he was named the Yadkin County Principal of the Year.
He is a member of NWRESA Principals Advisory Council. Forbush High School, under the leadership of Wallace, has been awarded the “Super Safe School” designation from 2004 to present. The high school was recognized in December 2007 as a “Signature School of the Piedmont Triad” by the Piedmont Triad Education Consortium and has received several other honors during his four years as principal.
Wallace is married to the former Kelli Brown, a native of Davie County and a 1988 graduate of Davie High School. They have two children, Caleb, 10, and Claire Grace, 8.
