A crowd of about 50 attended a stakeholders meeting hosted by Lowndes County School Board on Thursday at central office, where they could tell the board what qualities they want to see in the next superintendent of schools. The superintendent position will become board-appointed, rather than voter-elected, on Jan. 1. Lynn Wright, who has served as elected superintendent for eight years, has applied for appointment.

LCSD stakeholders meeting reveals pro-, anti-Wright divide

Technically, stakeholders were asked not to endorse or denounce specific candidates for Lowndes County School District superintendent Thursday evening during a board-hosted public forum at central office. Instead, the board asked for patrons to offer what qualities they wanted to see in the district's chief executive.
