NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - According to a statement from The Roger Bacon Academy, Eric Irizarry will become principal of DC Virgo Preparatory Academy.

Irizarry reportedly is the current headmaster of Roger Bacon Academy's middle school at Charter Day School, and has previously taught at Heyward C. Bellamy Elementary and Gregory Elementary schools, according to New Hanover County Schools. He also worked as director of operations and dean of instruction at Charter.

In 2009, he graduated from UNC Wilmington with a Master's Degree in School Administration.

In 2008, Irizarry cofounded and served as the curriculum director for Hillcrest Reading Program, which focuses on teaching at-risk students some of the same methods that are taught at Roger Bacon.

The New Hanover County School Board unanimously voted in February to approve Superintendent Dr. Tim Markley's plan to reopen Virgo Prep, previously called Virgo Middle School.

The school has been closed since last August and was denied its charter school status in December.
