Principal of 7th Hall high school has sights set on next year
Wes McGee, right, meets with Flowery Branch High Assistant Principal Kenny Hill Wednesday afternoon. While all the other principals are focused on the first week of school, McGee is focused on the first week of school in August 2018 when he starts as the principal of the new South Hall high school. McGee has hired Hill as athletic director for the new school.
While all the other principals in Hall County Schools have spent this week focused on the beginning of the 2017-18 school year, Wes McGee has his eyes on the beginning of the next school year — in August 2018. McGee serves as principal of a school that hasn’t started classes. In fact, his school doesn’t even have a name yet. After four years as a principal in Habersham County, McGee began work July 1 as the principal of the Hall County district’s seventh high school that is scheduled to open in August 2018 on the campus where Flowery Branch High currently sits as part of a shuffling of South Hall schools . A middle school, which will be the feeder school into the new high school, will also be housed at the current Flowery Branch High, but a principal is not expected to be selected for that school until December or January, according to Superintendent Will Schofield.
