BEAUFORT COUNTY, S.C. -

The Beaufort County Board of Education has selected three finalists in its search for a new superintendent:

Gloria J. Davis is currently the superintendent of the 9,100-student Decatur Public Schools in Decatur, Ill.

Kathryn LeRoy is the director of high school programs for the 125,000-student Duval County Public Schools in Jacksonville, Fla.

Jeffrey Moss is the superintendent of the 9,850-student Lee County Schools in Sanford, N.C.

The three finalists were selected from a pool of seven candidates interviewed by the Board earlier this week.  Those seven were chosen from a pool of 122 applications.

Each finalist will visit Beaufort County for a second interview with the Board, a meeting with district employees and a public forum that will be televised live on the Beaufort County Channel.

Officials have made some changes to those forums.  The new schedule is:

  • Wednesday, Feb. 13, 7-8 p.m. – Finalist Jeffrey Moss, district office at 2900 Mink Point Blvd. in Beaufort.
  • Thursday, Feb. 14, 7-8 p.m. – Finalist Kathryn LeRoy, district office at 2900 Mink Point Blvd. in Beaufort.
  • Tuesday, Feb. 19, 7:30-8:30 p.m. – Finalist Gloria J. Davis, Bluffton Library, 120 Palmetto Way in Bluffton.

At each forum, that night's featured candidate will make a brief opening statement and then answer questions from audience members. 

Questions will alternate between live audience members and television viewers who submit their queries via e-mail.

The public will be able to comment on the finalists using paper forms at the forums or electronic forms that will be posted to the school district's website beginning next Tuesday, Feb. 12.

The school district's former superintendent, Valerie Truesdale, retired in October and accepted a senior position in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District. 

Jackie Rosswurm, the district's human resources chief, has been serving as acting superintendent.

The Board hopes to have the new superintendent under contract by the first week of March but the person selected likely will not report to work until July 1.

    Rough Weather Causes Tree To Collapse onto House

    Our spate of nasty spring weather this weekend didn't just bring rain into the picture. In some parts of our immediate area wind was also a major part of the weather scene. A good example of this is the house in Liberty County that was walloped by a tree. Apparently the house, located in the 4700 block of East Ogelthrope Highway was damaged when a massive tree fell on it. Neighbors believe heavy winds caused the tree to topple onto the building. The good news here is no one was injured. But t...
