As Dr. Jamane Watson walked through the halls of Marlboro County High School, it was still a surreal feeling for him.
Watson, a 1996 graduate of the school, was named the new principal on June 30.
“It’s an unreal feeling,” he said. “It hasn’t set in yet that I am the principal of Marlboro County High School.”
And Watson is grateful to be able to directly give back to the community that gave to him.
“Marlboro County High School created the man that I am today with the rich traditions and the educators that I had,” he said.
Watson has nearly 20 years of experience in the field of education in grades kindergarten through 12th grade. Previously, he was an assistant principal at Lumberton Senior High School.
