Meet and Greet’ with the Darlington County School District’s superintendent finalists
You are invited to attend two “Meet and Greet” press conferences with the four superintendent finalists for the Darlington County School District. During these press conferences, both of which will have two finalists, you will get a chance to meet with each candidate for 30 minutes to ask questions.
Both press conferences will be held at the district Administration Building, located at 120 E. Smith Ave. in Darlington.
Press conference schedule:
· Wednesday, Feb. 21 from 3:15-4:15 p.m. - Drs. O'Gorman, Hargens
· Monday, Feb. 26 from 3:15-4:15 p.m. - Drs. Anderson, Newman
The four finalists are Dr. Chandar Anderson, Chesterfield County School District (South Carolina); Dr. Donna Hargens, Jefferson County Public Schools (Louisville, Kentucky); Dr. Tim Newman, Orangeburg Consolidated School District 4 (South Carolina); and Dr. Kevin O’Gorman, Berkeley County School District (South Carolina).
Drs. O’Gorman and Hargens will be in the Darlington County School District on Feb. 21-22. Drs. Anderson and Newman will be in the district on Feb. 26-27.
This is a little different than we have done in the past, but we hope it will be beneficial to all parties.
The candidates will also participate in a community reception at Black Creek Arts Council in Hartsville from 5-6:30 p.m. on Feb. 21 and Feb. 26. Please note that each night will feature two of the four candidates.
You are welcome to join us during that time as well but the candidates' focus at that point will be meeting our community members. The candidates will also meet throughout their visit in the district with teachers, support staff, business leaders, and principals, as well as tour the district.
