Word On The Street – John Westberg Former SouthWest Edgecombe High School Principal and Dean Of Students At North Edgecombe High School Contract Will Not Be Renewed In June And That It Appears He Wants To Take Edgecombe County Public Schools To Court

Sources say John Westberg Former SouthWest Edgecombe High School Principal and Dean Of Students At North Edgecombe High School Contract Will Not Be Renewed In June And That It Appears He Wants To Take Edgecombe County Public Schools To Court.

I was accused of treating Westberg some kind of way because I posted information about the testing probe in which the majority of the information source was The Daily Southerner. The wife of Westberg told me that you can’t believe everything the paper says. I said but I haven’t said what I believe and I have said up to this day what I believe. Like I have stated I don’t know the man. However I do not feel the ECPS would not have removed him from the school without having just cause.

Oh well I guess we will find out if there is any truth to Westberg vs ECPS in the near future.

It was good to hear from 2 radio talk show host friends. One had not heard from me in a while however I told him that I listen to the show all the time but do not get the opportunity to call in. The other host said he miss me calling in on a regular with information about what is going on in Edgecombe County.
