The Lexington District 2 school board has named three finalists for the superintendent position.
The board announced the following candidates at Thursday’s board meeting: Bill James, education consultant for the S.C. School for the Deaf and Blind and former superintendent of Cherokee County Schools; Brenda Turner, Superintendent of Orangeburg Consolidated District 4; and Tom Siler, Superintendent of Williston School District 29.
Two of the candidates have former experience working for the Lexington District 2. James was principal at Airport High School from 1995 to 1997. Turner served as the district’s director of elementary and middle programs from 2001 to 2007.
The board plans to announce the superintendent-elect in late July. The starting date for the new superintendent is July 1, 2015, when current Superintendent Venus Holland retires.
