GREENVILLE, N.C. -

Pitt County Schools announced changes in leadership at four schools for the 2013-14 school year.

D.H. Conley High School Principal Mary Carter is leaving. She'll take the same position at Wintergreen Primary and Intermediate Schools. Carter will replace the retiring Dawn Singleton. North Pitt High School Principal Mike King will fill Carter's position at D.H. Conley.

Lionel Kato will lead North Pitt and exit Farmville Middle School. He's been the principal there the past four years. Randy St. Clair will take Kato's position.

Carter just completed her 27th year in education. She's spent the past 11 years as an administrator, including the past four at D.H. Conley.

"I am excited to become a part of an outstanding school like Wintergreen," Carter said. "I look forward to working with the students, faculty, staff, and parents to make a difference in our community and in the lives of young people."

King brings 14 years of educational experience with him to Conley. He has nine years of administrative experience.

"I have enjoyed my time at North Pitt High School, we have made great accomplishments," King said. "The teachers and students have so much to be proud of. I am looking forward to becoming the principal of D.H. Conley as we continue to help produce successful students for Pitt County Schools."

Kato has 14 years of experience as a high school and middle school teacher and an administrator at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.

Kato is the Pitt County Schools Principal of the Year. He was also the North Carolina School Library Media Association Administrator of the Year for 2011-12.

"I am very excited to have been selected to lead the Panther family," Kato said. "While it is with a heavy heart that I am leaving the wonderful community of Farmville, I am excited and looking forward to working with the students, parents, faculty, and staff of the North Pitt community. I want to work in unity with all parties to ensure that the legacy of providing excellent and diverse opportunities for success to the students of North Pitt continues."

This will be St. Clair's first job as principal.
