BURGAW, NC (WWAY) — Administrators in Pender County have pulled a quick about face with a school principal.

The Pender County Board of Education announced today it has reinstated Marcus Skipper as principal of Topsail High School effective immediately. Earlier this week Skipper was reassigned to be principal at Cape Fear Middle School, which upset many parents and students at Topsail High.

“Marcus Skipper requested to be reinstated,” Pender County Schools spokeswoman Joyce Keith told WWAY in an e-mail. “The decision is in the best interest of Topsail High School and Cape Fear Middle School.”

The position of principal at Cape Fear Middle School will be posted immediately.
