The Georgetown County School District Board of Education has selected Keith Price as the district's new superintendent.

Price currently serves as Assistant Superintendent for the Richland 2 School District, a position he has held since 2014. Previously, he has worked in Richland 2 as principal of Blythewood High School, principal of E.L. Wright Middle School, assistant principal of E.L. Wright Middle School, teacher and assistant administrator at Ridgeview High School, and math teacher at Dent Middle School. 

“Our Board was very pleased with Mr. Price's skills and experiences,” said Georgetown Board Chairman Jim Dumm. “We believe he best fits qualities outlined in our community and staff written leadership profile. Mr. Price also has strong experience in areas that will serve our district well now and in the future." 

Keith Price was one of three finalists selected by the Board. All three finalists were featured in videos posted on the district website and the local media since last Friday, and this week each had a second interview with the Board. Other finalists were Dr. Valarie Williams who currently serves as Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction for the Scotland County, N.C. Public Schools, and Dr. William Wright who currently serves as the superintendent of the Hertford County, N.C. Public Schools. 

"All three finalists were excellent candidates and outstanding educational leaders. We believe, however, that Keith Price is the best fit for Georgetown," said Dumm. 

Price will assume his duties as Georgetown County School District’s new superintendent July 1, 2020. 

"Selecting our next superintendent has been an important process for the Board, and we believe we have found an outstanding leader. We are very appreciative of the employee and community support we have received throughout our search, and we are looking forward to a great future for our district under Mr. Price’s leadership," said Dumm.
