By Melissa Rollins, Editor, email@example.com
The Darlington County School District could be without a superintendent when school starts in the fall. Dr. Eddie Ingram, who has served in that post since 2013, was recently named one of three finalists in the running for the superintendent position in the Berkeley County School District.
In a release issued by the Berkeley District, it was announced that the three finalists would visit with the community Aug. 1 – 3.
Ingram himself issued a release regarding the possible changes in DCSD administration.
“Last week the Berkeley County School District announced I am one of the finalists for their superintendent position,” Ingram wrote. “I love being a part of the Darlington County School District; it is a pleasure to work with our people and schools. Together we have accomplished a great deal and have set high expectations and ambitious goals for student success.”
Ingram went on to say that the Berkeley County position offered new challenges that he could not pass up on.
“This opportunity in Berkeley County presents new professional challenges too attractive to not explore,” Ingram said. “Nonetheless, there is amazing leadership in Darlington County School District and we will continue to work toward our goals.”
Ingram has a wide-range of experience in the education field, spanning more than three decades. He was serving as Franklin County School District Superintendent prior to his tenure in Darlington. He has also served as an Executive Director for Curriculum and Instruction, a Latin and English teacher and as an Executive Director for Secondary Instruction and Personnel, among other positions in districts across North Carolina.
Ingram has a bachelor’s degree from Old Dominion University. He earned two master’s degrees and a doctorate from East Carolina University. He is married to Sue Cataen-Ingram, who also works for the Darlington County School District.
No formal announcement was made by DCSD about Ingram being named a finalist for the Berkeley County job.
