Dear Horton Stakeholders:
During its June 13, 2016 meeting, the Chatham County Board of Education approved the appointment of Mrs. Valencia Toomer as the principal of Horton Middle School, effective July 1, 2016. Mrs. Toomer currently serves as an Assistant Principal at Northwood High School.
Prior to joining the administrative team at Northwood, Mrs. Toomer was the Assistant Principal at Silk Hope School. She earned her undergraduate degree from UNC-Charlotte and her Master’s in Administration from Washington State University.
Regarding Mrs. Toomer’s appointment, Chatham County Schools Superintendent Dr. Derrick D. Jordan said, “Mrs. Toomer has middle school teaching experience as well as administrative experience across the PK-12 spectrum. Her passion for middle school students in particular coupled with her enthusiasm and proven track record as an effective leader will ensure that Horton Middle School’s vision is fully realized.”
Horton Middle School was selected to send a team of students to a Student Leadership Institute run by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. Over 100 schools applied and 26 were selected from elementary, middle and high schools across the state.
