Jason Weaver named East Middle School assistant principal
It has been announced that Mr. Jarrett Cook's replacement as vice-principal at East Middle School is going to be Mr. Jason Weaver.
Mr. Weaver has been a seventh grade social studies teacher at East/South for the last nine years, and he's moving up in the school to become Mr. Sexton's aide, replacing Mr. Cook, who is the new principal at Jefferson Elementary.
Mr.Cook had been assistant principal at East Middle School for the past three years.
Mr. Weaver was selected following interviews Friday, May 13. The panel that interviewed the assistant principal candidates included Mr. Sexson and EMS teachers Mr. Michael Wallace and Mrs. Lisa Simmons.
Last week, Mr. Sexson perfectly described our new assistant principal when he told EMS Roundabout the qualities he wanted from the person who was hired.
"He must be caring, a good communicator with the kids and must be able to do a good job of having fun with students and educating them at the same time," Mr. Sexson said.
