As a parent of a senior and an upcoming freshman at Marvin Ridge High School, I feel compelled to let Union County residents know how much we will miss our former principal, Mr. Bill Cook. Although he will always be with us, he is now able to help all children of Union County and not just Marvin. You will find what we have known since the opening of our high school. He is devoted to the student’s success, as demonstrated by helping our school achieve the award for the No. 1 school in N.C. He has always been attentive to students, staff, and parents alike. He is well respected and challenges everyone. We will miss seeing him throughout the school, but know that he has greater things in store for all Union County students.
