Dr. Douglas Eury, West Forsyth principal, has announced he will be leaving. Eury has accepted a position as a professor at Gardner-Webb University. Making his announcement to the faculty and staff at the high school, Eury said he had enjoyed his year at West, but the faculty position at Gardner-Webb was an opportunity he could not pass by. Eury came to West from North Davidson High School as of July 1 last year. He took over from Gene Nail, who was serving as interim principal following the retirement of Norma Harbin
