Robert Wilson, principal of Lyman Hall Elementary, has been recommended to become the first principal of Cherokee Bluff Middle School, scheduled to open in fall 2018.
Superintendent Will Schofield announced the move Saturday in a press release from the Hall County school system. Wilson will be recommended for approval at the Hall County Board of Education work session set for 5 p.m. Nov. 13.
Wilson has been principal at Lyman Hall since 2012. He joined the Hall school district in 2010 after previously serving four years as assistant principal at McNair Middle School in College Park.
Wilson earned an Education Specialist Degree from Lincoln Memorial University in 2010, a master’s degree from Troy State University in 2000, and a bachelor’s degree from LaGrange College in 1994. He and his wife have two sons who attend Hall County schools. They live in Braselton.
Cherokee Bluff Middle and Cherokee Bluff High schools are set to open next August at the start of the 2018-19 school year. They will occupy the building at 6603 Spout Springs Road that currently houses Flowery Branch High, which will return to its original building at 4450 Hog Mountain Road currently occupied by Davis Middle School.
Davis will move to the current site of South Hall Middle, which will in turn move to its former home at the Academies of Discovery, near Johnson High School.
