“I met with Mr. Stone and after that meeting we decided it would be best for him to transfer into a different role with us,” said Manchester City Schools Director Dr. Joey Vaughn. “He has done a really good job and he wanted a change. He is still with the district, he will be helping out doing different roles at WMS and within the district through the remainder of the school year.”

Dobson will serve as the school’s interim principal through the end of the school year, when the job will be posted.
