A once suspended principal has been replaced at Bertie High School, but he has a new job at the district's central office.
According to a statement from the school system's lawyer, Rickey Eley has been assigned as principal at the high school, and Watford is now the Transportation Supervisor at the Central Office while Eley has been assigned as principal for the rest of the school year. Eley had been principal at Colerain Elementary.
Carson Watford was put on paid suspension October 19th, just three weeks after being named principal at the school. He started at the school on September 28th, moving from Hertford County.
