The district said earlier this week that Evans Branigan, a former principal, was the subject of an investigation. They mentioned claims of verbal abuse and failing to adhere to district policies in relation to a student disciplinary issue.

Cheryl Perkins, a neighbor, praised the appointment. While her son attended North Central, White was the principal, and she claimed he positively impacted their lives.

“He was very inspiring and encouraging. When my son graduated from college and was working on his certification to become a high school administrator, he reached out to Dr. White and was very encouraging,” said Perkins.

Perkins is now hoping that White will similarly impact present-day North Central pupils.

“To be able to have someone come in with such a strong track record, that has proven over the years that he understands the issues that our young people have, I think, is very beneficial for North Central,” she said.

The board launched the search for a new North Central principal in December. Branigan declared his intention to leave teaching after the current academic year, months before the alleged event involving him.

Woodson declared that she is pleased with the school district’s direction.

“We know these skillsets will assist in providing a strong finish to the school year at North Central,” said Woodson.
