Dr. Freddie Williamson, who was 2017 Superintendent of the Year in North Carolina and is completing his 12th year as superintendent of Hoke County public schools near Fayetteville, NC.

“Our school board was extremely impressed with each of these four candidates, and we had an exceptional overall group of applicants,” said Lucy Parsons, chair of the Marlboro County Board of Education.

“This has been a great process and we very much want our community to have the opportunity to meet these folks before we make a decision about the next superintendent,” she said.
