Florence School District One names interim superintendent

Florence School District One has named who will lead the district when the current superintendent, Dr. Allie Brooks, retires next month.

Thursday night, the district named Dr. Cleo Richardson as interim superintendent.

Dr. Richardson has previously led a school district in the Columbia area.

Earlier this month, the school board announced they weren't able to find a superintendent.

The district spent close to $17,000 in the search.
