Erik Naglee, the principal at Northwest Middle School, is set to be the new leader at Page High School in Greensboro.

Naglee is one of five principals whose appointment the Guilford County Board of Education approved late Thursday. All will begin their new jobs July 1.

Naglee worked at Northwest for two years and was a finalist for principal of the year in 2017. He also has been the principal at Pearce Elementary and the school system’s director of federal programs and Title I.

The appointment follows the retirement of Eric Hines this winter. He was the principal at Page for roughly a semester after becoming the interim principal late last school year when Patrice Faison left to become the superintendent of schools in Thomasville.

Hines’ interim replacement this year, Lisé Timmons-McLaughlin, was approved Thursday to become the principal for The Academy at Smith, a career academy in Greensboro located near the larger Smith High campus. The academy emphasizes electrical technologies and medical professions.

She had previously been a student services administrator for the school system from 2009 to 2017.

The board also approved:

  • Kevin Conaway as principal at Southeast Middle, where he is serving as interim principal.
  • Colfax Elementary principal Michelle Thigpen as principal for Southwest Elementary.
  • Julie Kimsey, assistant principal at Colfax, as principal of the school.
