October is National Principals Appreciation Month. Here in the Newton-Conover City Schools, we are fortunate to have fantastic principals leading our staff and students each day. We are also blessed to have strong Instructional Coaches and Assistant Principals helping to lead the charge to make sure our campuses are safe, nurturing places where students are able to learn to their greatest potential. All of our building-level leaders are true servant-leaders who understand that their role is to attend to the needs of a variety of stakeholders on a daily basis. During this month in honor of what we are calling "Admin Appreciation Month", our school system wants to honor these folks and shine a spotlight on them to let them know how much we appreciate them as professionals and as people. Please join us in honoring these folks for the difficult work they do!!!! Today, Dr. Gabriel and N-CCS recognizes Dr. Phyllis Pegram, Principal of Conover School.
Dr. Pegram has had a long and successful tenure as principal of Conover School. She cares deeply about the students and staff at this truly unique school. The challenge of serving at Conover School is that there are so few schools around the state of North Carolina like it. She has formed and nurtured many beneficial partnerships for the school. She has led the school through several unique transitions in its 40+ year history.
