Fulton schools appoints three elementary principals

New principals have been named for three elementary schools in Fulton County.

The principals are: Coretta Stewart for Alpharetta Elementary, Christine Lemerond for Shakerag Elementary and LaToya Gray for Summit Hill Elementary. Lemerond begins her new role April 1, while Stewart and Gray begin their positions April 11, according to a released statement from the Fulton school system.

Currently an assistant principal at Stonewall Tell Elementary School, Stewart has worked in Fulton schools for nearly 20 years, six of which have been in school leadership and management. She succeeds Adam Maroney, who is heading to the new Highway 9 Elementary School as its new principal.

Lemerond succeeds Martin Neuhaus who became principal of Barnwell Elementary School. Lemerond has spent the past eight years at Wilson Creek Elementary, first as a curriculum support teacher, and most recently, as its assistant principal. Before that she taught at Abbotts Hill Elementary.

Gray replaces Nancy Murphy who retired earlier this year. Gray began her career in elementary education as a speech and language pathologist in Cherokee County schools where she also worked in the high school setting. In 2013, she joined Fulton schools as an assistant principal at Cambridge High School.
