Howard “Kris” Clark has been named the new principal of Fuquay-Varina Middle School.
The Wake County school system announced Tuesday that Clark will start his new job on Nov. 4 with a salary of $83,888. He replaces Terrance McCotter, who left Fuquay-Varina Middle to become principal of Fuquay-Varina High School.
