Lake Forest Principals in front of the school.
Clifton L. Long (1941- ) was the principal, and Gwendolyn L. Robinson (1931- ) and Russell D. Simmons (1943- ) were the assistant principals at Lake Forest School in this photo, probably when it was a 7th and 8th grade center in the early 1970s. All three went on to work in other positions in the New Hanover County school system: Clifton Long was later the assistant superintendent for operations in the 1980s, Dr. Russell Simmons was the principal at Lake Forest and Virgo Middle schools, and Ms. Robinson became the principal of Dudley Junior High which became Howe Elementary in the late 1970s.
