Fort Mill Schools Superintendent Keith Callicutt was not selected for the same position with Horry County schools, he said last week. Callicutt, one of three finalists for that job, said he is looking forward to "continuing our work here in Fort Mill" and has no plans to launch another job search.
"My energies will be dedicated to the task at hand," Callicutt said.
The Horry board unanimously selected Cynthia Elsberry, superintendent of Talladega County Schools in Alabama, district spokeswoman Teal Britton said last week.
"I'm relieved," Fort Mill school board Chairman Jan Smiley said after hearing the news. "Of course, the board is looking forward continuing to work with him. It's the time of year we sit down and set our board and superintendent goals. With the bond referendum just passed, we have architect interviews shortly. I'm glad our focus is going to be back on the job we're here to do."
Voters in the district just approved a nearly $96 million bond referendum to build schools, additional athletic facilities and buy land for future schools. The district already has two elementary schools scheduled to open in 2009 under construction.
