Enloe High School’s new principal doesn’t start work until tomorrow, but he’s already a familiar face.
Scott Lyons has a history at the school, starting there as an English teacher in 1999, then taking on his first assistant principal gig there in 2002.
He left for a principal spot at Ligon Middle School in 2005, then hopped to Leesville Road High School in 2009.
Last month, the Wake County Board of Education moved him back to Enloe, and Lyons couldn’t be more pleased.
Staff Writer Chelsea Kellner caught up with Lyons last week to hear his plans for the school and what he’s learned during his time away. Responses have been edited for length.
The flip side of that is that I’m very sad to leave Leesville before this group of students graduates. I do plan to go back for graduation.
