PITTSBORO — The Chatham County Board of Education named Lemondré Watson as the new principal of Pittsboro Elementary School at its meeting Monday.

Watson is in his ninth year as a public school educator. He previously served as the assistant principal at Carroll Magnet Middle School in Wake County.

Watson received his undergraduate degree from the College of William and Mary and his master’s degree in School Administration from N.C. State University.

Watson was the 2018-19 Assistant Principal of the Year for Vance County Schools. The 2013 Teach For America Corp member said he was excited about his new role with Chatham County Schools.

“I am really looking forward to getting to know our Pittsboro Elementary School families,” Watson said. “This is a great school district in a community that is well known for its support of public education. I am looking forward to what we can accomplish at PES. I am truly fortunate to be a part of CCS.”

Chatham County Schools Superintendent Dr. Anthony Jackson said Watson brings valuable experience to the district.

“Mr. Watson is a great addition to our team,” Jackson said. “His leadership and experience will ensure continued high-quality education at Pittsboro Elementary, and his role here will benefit the community, as well as the school district.”
