Administrative reassignment continue at Wayne County Public Schools, with eight assistant principal changes announced, including a former principal at Goldsboro High School.
John Twitty, who had previously been principal at Belfast and Wayne High School academies, alternative schools in the district, was named principal for administration at GHS two years ago. This past year, he took over as sole administrator at the school.
When the district made principal re-assignment late last month, Tonya Faison was named GHS principal. School officials said it had been Twitty's decision to step down as administrator, and that he had requested the "opportunity for professional growth as an assistant principal."
He has been assigned as assistant principal at Charles B. Aycock High School. Prior to joining the district in 1998, he had served in the military. In addition to teaching language arts at Brogden Middle and Belfast, he was a behavior specialist at Belfast.
Twitty has also previously been an assistant principal at Eastern Wayne High.
Freda Allen, a math teacher at Southern Wayne High since joining the district in 1996, will become the new assistant principal at Rosewood Middle.
She holds a bachelor's degree in math and a master's degree in school administration.
Ryan Nelson, assistant principal at Eastern Wayne High since 2007, moves over to Southern Wayne in the same capacity.

He earned a bachelor's degree in criminal justice and a master's degree in school administration.
The new assistant principal at Eastern Wayne High will be Carlton Stevens, formerly a teacher at Dillard Middle.
Stevens began his teaching career at Dillard in 2008, where he taught business education. He has a bachelor's degree in business administration and organizational development, and master's degrees in business administration and school administration.
Rosewood Middle assistant principal Cheryll Price has been assigned to the role at Spring Creek High. With the district since 1989, she has taught at Pikeville, Carver and Spring Creek elementary schools. She became assistant principal at Rosewood in 2010.
Ms. Price has a bachelor's degree in elementary education and a master's degree in school administration.
Jessie Taylor, formerly at Aycock, will become the other assistant principal at Spring Creek High.
Since joining the district in 1997, he has served as assistant principal at Goldsboro Middle and CBA. He has also been assistant principal and principal at Eastern Wayne Middle.
He earned a bachelor's degree in industrial arts and a master's degree in school administration. Prior to coming to WCPS, he spent 19 years teaching and serving in administrative roles at several schools in Virginia.
The new assistant principal at Goldsboro High will be Brian Weeks, formerly in the same role at Southern Wayne.
Weeks has a bachelor's degree in elementary education and a master's degree in school administration.
