Fayetteville, NC – Following the recommendation of Superintendent Dr. Marvin Connelly, Jr., the Cumberland County Board of Education approved two major leadership appointments during Tuesday night’s Board meeting. Brian Edkins will serve as principal of Cape Fear High School and Dr. Pamela Adams-Watkins has been named the executive director of the Exceptional Children’s Department.

Edkins, who served as the long-time principal of South View High School, returns to CCS from recently serving as the principal of Scotland High School in Laurinburg, NC. He has a career in public education that spans more than 25 years.

“Having worked in Cumberland County Schools for over 23 years, I am excited to return to a great district with such great leadership,” Edkins said. “It is a dream come true to lead and continue to grow Cape Fear High School. The community support at Cape Fear is second to none, which should lead to an exciting year.”

Adams-Watkins currently serves as principal of Massey Hill Classical High School. She began her career in 1991 as an EC teacher. Previously, she served as an assistant principal at Massey Hill and at Douglas Byrd Middle School.

“I am excited about this opportunity to return to exceptional children and look forward to serving the district while pursuing my passion of advocacy for exceptional children and their families,” said Adams-Watkins. “I have spent the majority of my career working with students with special needs and look forward to implementing the goals of the Strategic Plan to ensure the success of all our students.”
