Salisbury High School principal to meet public

Salisbury High School’s PTA is hosting a meet-and-greet from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday in the school’s media center so parents, students and staff can meet the school’s new principal, Luke Brown.
It’s an opportunity for everyone in the school family to meet Brown and make him feel welcome, said Rita Foil, the public information officer for the Rowan-Salisbury School System.
“I’m looking forward to the opportunity to meet the parents and students,” Brown said.
The meet-and-greet was scheduled for after the holidays to make it easier for people to attend, but he wanted to do it as soon as possible.
The Rowan-Salisbury School System Board of Education voted Dec. 16 to hire Brown for the job at Salisbury. Brown will take over as Salisbury High School’s principal on Jan. 21.
Salisbury High School has been looking for a principal since late September when Dr. Avis Williams resigned. The school board received 47 applications for the position between Sept. 27 and Dec. 2.
Brown will replace Kathy McDuffie, who has served as the school’s interim principal since Williams’ departure in October.
Williams was principal from July 2, 2012, to Oct. 11, 2013. She left to become the executive director of curriculum and instruction for secondary schools with Guilford County Schools.
Williams was preceded by Dr. Windsor Eagle, who retired after 30 years at Salisbury High School.
Brown has served as an assistant principal at Trinity High School in Randolph county since 2009. Before that, he was the band director at Eastern Randolph High School.
McDuffie sent a ConnectED announcing the meet and greet to parents Thursday.
