At its regular monthly meeting on December 7th, the Yancey County Board of Education named East Yancey Middle School Principal Angie Anglin as the new Exceptional Children / Accountability Director for Yancey County Schools.

Anglin will begin her new duties on February 1st, bringing 26 years of experience within Yancey County Schools to her new role. Anglin’s career began at East Yancey Middle School as a language arts teacher serving fourteen years in the classroom before moving into the role of Assistant Principal. Anglin then moved to Clearmont Elementary as principal for six years before returning to East Yancey in her current position of principal.

“I feel strongly that this position has a tremendous responsibility in making sure that our students with disabilities are afforded the opportunity to reach their potential as individuals,” Anglin stated on her new role.

Superintendent Dr. Tony Tipton who recommended Anglin for the position added, “Ms. Anglin has been very successful throughout her years with YCS, serving on many advisory boards for the system as well as her community involvement. The Board and I feel confident that this move into Exceptional Children and Accountability Director is a natural step in Ms. Anglin’s career and that she will be very successful in serving the students and parents in these programs.”

Anglin is replacing EC / Accountability Director Pete Peterson who is retiring on January 29th, after a career of over 30 years in public education in North Carolina and Georgia. A drop-in reception is planned for Mr. Peterson in January for parents and colleagues to stop in and wish Mr. Peterson a happy retirement!
