Principal for Gwinnett’s Paul Duke STEM High School named

The Gwinnett school district’s new high school, slated to open next year, has its first principal. Dr. Jonathon Wetherington, currently the district’s director of science, has been named principal of Paul Duke STEM High School, the district announced.

In addition to Wetherington’s new position, Gwinnett County Public Schools also announced that two high school principals — Dr. Reuben Gresham of Lanier High and Anthony Smith of Duluth High — will join the district office as assistant superintendents for high schools. The three men will not transition to their new roles until their successors are named, the district office said.
