The proclamation cites McFerrin’s “compelling devotion to the education profession” and thanked him for “creating a healthy and happy learning environment at Dunwoody High School.”

McFerrin announced July 27 that he was stepping down as the school’s principal. He will be taking a new job as the DeKalb County School District’s Career Technical and Agricultural Education coordinator.

A new principal has yet to be selected and McFerrin remains at DHS until a new one is hired.
