Three weeks after the Alamance-Burlington School System began classes for the 2022-23 academic year, the district named its top two administrators on Sept. 19. 

ABSS Superintendent Dain Butler and Deputy Superintendent Lowell Rogers honored Greg Hook and Tameka Cloud as ABSS Principal of the Year and Assistant Principal of the Year, respectively. 

Hook is the principal of Hawfields Middle School in Mebane, where he has been for nearly 10 years. He first began his career as a classroom teacher at Williams High School. 

“I'm fortunate to be surrounded by a professional staff that remains focused on creating challenging learning opportunities to match individual student needs so that students can reach their maximum academic potential,” Hook said in a press release. “The real accolades for my achievement belong to the staff at Hawfields Middle School.” 

Cloud has been with ABSS for 27 years and has served as assistant principal of Eastlawn Academy for the past nine.

“It is such an honor to work with my Eastlawn family each day,” Cloud said in the release.  “I’m driven by the students and staff who show up every day and work hard to accomplish the goals we have set.  It is rewarding to see our students graduate from high school, come back to visit, and let me know their memories of Eastlawn.”
