Horry Schools choose a superintendent
By Claudia Lauer
The Horry County School Board voted unanimously to appoint Cynthia Elsberry to the open superintendent position for Horry County Schools.
“I’m humbled and I’m honored to be given this privilege leading the Horry County Schools. I’m still in shock,” Elsberry said from her home in Alabama, where she is currently the superintendent of Talladega Public Schools. “I’ve been tremendously impressed with the high level of interest that the board has shown in addressing student achievement. That is my passion and I look forward to working with the board on that.”
The school board members said they were impressed with all of the finalists who came to the district for public interviews over the last three days.
“There really were no negatives for any of the candidates. They all had their strengths, but it was a matter of Dr. Elsberry’s positives outweighing the positives that the other candidates had to offer,” said board Chariman Will Garland.
