The Whiteville City Schools Board of Education has announced that Dr. Jonathan B. Williams will be the district’s new superintendent. Williams is a life-long resident of Columbus County whose educational career spans over 32 years.
Having served as teacher, assistant principal, principal, and currently associate superintendent, Williams understands the many facets of public education and especially the value of building relationships.
“I believe deeply in building positive, lasting relationships. Genuine relationships with students, families, the community, employees, and our Board create a culture that will generate greater opportunities for students and their families,” said the newly appointed superintendent. “Whiteville City Schools has a long tradition of excellence, and I am honored to stand upon the shoulders of others to continue that rich tradition.”
Board chair Kandle Rogers also gave her approval for the appointment of Williams.
“God has blessed our district once again to have an experienced and knowledgeable leader to work with our Board, our employees, and our community to make great things happen for our children. Dr. Williams knows our community and our people. He knows public education, and we are excited about the leadership and experiences he will bring to Whiteville City Schools,” she expressed.
Williams is expected to begin in the latter part of August.
