New Principal Named | Please welcome Mr. Eric Taylor!

On Tuesday, June 7, the WCPSS Board of Education appointed Eric Taylor as the new principal of Brier Creek Elementary! Mr. Taylor is currently the principal of Ephesus Elementary in Chapel Hill. Prior to that, he was a principal in Alamance County. Mr. Taylor is a graduate of Southern and Oral Roberts Universities, and loves sports. His favorite teams are any team from the city of Houston, TX, where he was born and raised. 

Mr. Taylor came by this week to meet the staff and left this message for you

We are planning to begin the school year with an Interim Principal, Retired WCPSS Principal Catherine Yanello, at the helm  until Mr. Taylor is able to officially join the Jets family later in the summer.
