BoE seeks new Superintendent of Schools

On a motion by Bradley Shingler, the Braxton County Board of Education voted 4-1 to post for the position of Superintendent. Shingler, President Jill Cooper, Vice President David Hoover, and DeAnna Whipkey, who seconded the motion, all voted in favor of the posting. Dolores Wright voted against the motion. Current Superintendent David Dilly’s contract runs out in June 2019. The motion allows the board the opportunity to find a replacement before the end of his contract. Before the motion, two individuals had requested to speak to the board on this matter, David Hosey and Shawn Crowe. Hosey was against the renewal of Superintendent Dilly’s contract. Crowe spoke on the opposite side and wished to keep him as Superintendent.
