PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Topsail High School’s principal has been suspended, but no one is saying why. Pender County Schools spokeswoman Joyce Keith says Marcus Skipper was suspended Monday with pay. Keith said in an e-mail to WWAY, “There are no further comments.”

Back in June the school board reassigned Skipper to Cape Fear Middle School leading to outcry from Topsail parents and students. Within days, the board reversed its decision.

“Marcus Skipper requested to be reinstated,” Keith told WWAY in an e-mail June 16. “The decision is in the best interest of Topsail High School and Cape Fear Middle School.”

I have heard from a source very close to this issue why Mr. Skipper was suspended, and I believe he deserved to be. It has NOTHING to do with any axe the school board has to grind. I have an Honors student at THS and I am very unimpressed with the direction the school is going under Mr. Skipper’s (lack of) leadership. “Walking down the hall with a happy face” is nice, but not the only thing a principal should get paid such a high salary for doing.
