Wilson, Davis, Lamboy and Turner in charge of Camden superintendent replacement

At Tuesday night's Camden City School Board meeting, board president Kathryn Blackshear appointed board members Martha Wilson, Sara Davis, Ray Lamboy and new board member Brian Turner to serve on a newly created superintendent search ad hoc committee.

The group will be in charge of collecting and reviewing resumes for the next superintendent to replace Bessie LeFra Young when she steps down from her top post June 30, Blackshear said Wednesday.

A special board meeting will be held June 13 to discuss the criteria the board will use in looking for a new leader.

Young accepted a $62,000 buyout last week. Read story HERE.
