An­gela Cobb has been named prin­ci­pal of North­east­ern High School.

The ap­point­ment of Cobb, who has served as prin­ci­pal of Weeksville Ele­men­tary School since 2016 and has 27 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in ed­u­ca­tion, was ap­proved this week by the El­iz­a­beth City-Pasquotank Board of Ed­u­ca­tion.

She succeeds Alton Campbell, who left NHS to become principal at Chowan Middle School in the Edenton-Chowan Schools.

Cobb has bach­e­lor’s and mas­ter’s de­grees in English ed­u­ca­tion from East Carolina Univer­sity. She also holds a mas­ter’s de­gree in school ad­min­is­tra­tion from El­iz­a­beth City State Univer­sity.

In a state­ment re­leased through the El­iz­a­beth City-Pasquotank Public Schools, Cobb ex­pressed ap­pre­ci­a­tion for those she has worked with at Weeksville.

“The staff, stu­dents and par­ents con­nected to Weeksville Ele­men­tary taught me how to be a prin­ci­pal,” Cobb said. “I will be for­ever grate­ful for the sup­port, kind­ness and love that has sur­rounded me in this school since I be­gan. I look for­ward to join­ing the North­east­ern High School fam­ily and I am ea­ger to soar to new heights with the Ea­gles.”

It was not clear Thurs­day who will take over the prin­ci­pal du­ties at Weeksville Ele­men­tary with Cobb’s de­par­ture.
