Horry County, South Carolina and Knox County, TN are competing for one guy, Brian Bingelli. Horry County, South Carolina’s revenue is $498 million dollars and their Superintendent salary range is $200,000. Knox County School’s revenue is around $352 million and their Superintendent salary range is $240,000.
We all knew that $240,000 was too much to pay for a Knox County Superintendent. But, know we really know. We have a benchmark and the benchmark is ugly.
