Message from Principal

Dr. Anna Romero-Lehrer, Surf City Middle School

Dr. Romero-Lehrer, currently the principal at Topsail Middle School, has been named principal of Surf City Middle School. She recently earned a doctorate in Educational Leadership from East Carolina University and holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of New Mexico and a master’s degree from Lesley University. Dr. Romero-Lehrer brings 37 years of experience working in education to Surf City Middle School, 23 of which have been as a building administrator.

Dr. Romero-Lehrer is looking forward to the opportunity to open a new school in the Topsail area.

“Pender County is one of the fastest growing counties in the state,” Dr. Romero-Lehrer said. “Having been a part of the Topsail school community since 2007, I have seen the impact this growth has had on our schools. I’m very happy to be involved in the opening Surf City Middle School and creating a learning environment where students receive the educational experience families have come to expect from Pender County Schools.”
