This is a red letter day for Union County. The board has chosen an "outsider" as the new superintendent.

The NGN said that over 40 persons applied. I am sure there were a lot of locals. I wonder if "you know who" of email fame sent in his resume and was it even considered.

My congratulations to the school board for doing the right thing for our children.

Here we go again! I would like to thank the Union County BOE for their foresight in choosing a so called"out sider" for the new school superintendent. This is contrary to recent articles and statements that I have heard. OK-now what is most important? Hiring the most qualified and capable person to lead UCHS to the next level or keep trying to spout off a personal agenda that is wearing old and shopworn.

Would anyone like to venture forth with the average UCHS SAT score? I know!! How about the YDP score? How about the drop out rate? With the massive changes in HOPE a lot of kids are on the bubble or are not being properly prepared will be denied the funds for college, which is a crying shame. Whose feet do we lay this little nugget st?

The new Superintendent came out of the NC school system, and is considered one of the best system's in the nation. Well since GA is number 49 in everything I guess anything would be an improvement.

North Carolina's SAT's, YDP'S, graduation rate, lower drop out rate and ADA rate and number of students not having to take remedial classes as college freshmen is testimony that the only way to go is up.

Am I allowed to bring up some possible? .... Okay - Question:
How many years has our new superintendent have in education? Thought:
Does he have "nearly" 30 years - time of retirement? Also, NC? Hummm-
many of my Savannah teacher friends would "retire" from Georgia and then "drive" over the bridge and work in SC and get regular paychecks plus good retirement from GA.

Hopefully our new person is "not" using us for 2-3 years as a retirement vehicle.

I am sure my questions above are moot - but watch. I am pleased we do have an open system that will consider "all" candidates - whether from here or a "foreigner"... Smile really, Woofs PS - We have a wonderful county for anyone to take on the job - great/good teachers and your students/children are unbelievably wonderful. PS Tell the new Sup to contact me for some great advice on how to cut educational funding that "won't" effect/affect our future generation - Smile again - Woofs
