Pittsboro, NC - The Chatham County Board of Education has selected Charles Aiken as the new principal of Moncure School. The Board held a regular meeting on Monday, October 23, at Moncure School. Aiken will take over the principalship on December 1. George Cooper, a retired principal, has been serving as the interim principal of Moncure since the school year began in August.

Aiken comes to Chatham County Schools from Wake County Schools where he currently serves as an assistant principal at Heritage Middle School. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in History from UNC Chapel Hill and a Master of School Administration from North Carolina State University. Aiken earned his teacher licensure in social studies from UNC Wilmington.

“We are so appreciative to George Cooper for working with us at Moncure as an interim until we could find the administrator who was the right fit for Moncure. He has given us valuable time to find Charles. I believe Charles has much to offer the staff, students, and families of Moncure School,” said Dr. Ann Hart, Superintendent.

Sheila Tilley, Chief Finance Officer, has resigned effective November 30. Tilley has been in Chatham County Schools since 1994. She retired at one point, but continued to work with the finance department on a limited basis. Tilley returned fulltime as interim finance officer in the spring of 2005.

“We are fortunate that Sheila has been willing to fill this important role for us. Her level of experience has been an asset,” commented Hart.
