New Principal

The Mecklenburg County School Board welcomed new Park View Middle School principal Dr. Nancy Riddell at its meeting on Monday night. A professor of education at Longwood University, Riddell will assume her new duties officially on Oct. 3. She informed the board that she had already visited the school and met with some of the students and is looking forward to starting in early October. She replaces former principal Mark Mabey, who left the post in September to take over as director of secondary education for Isle of Wight County Public Schools. (Olivia Allison/South Hill Enterprise)
