Final forum for NHC Schools Superintendent candidates

READ MORE: Final forum for NHC Schools Superintendent candidates

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The final candidate for New Hanover County Schools Superintendent spoke to the community. Dr. Donna Hargens started her career in education as a Spanish and English teacher in Wisconsin. In North Carolina Hargens was principal of Cary and Green Hope high schools, and now holds the position of Interim Superintendent in Wake County.

Hargens went to college at Marquette University, received her Masters from UNC Chapel Hill, and earned her Doctor of Education degree from Seton Hall University.

"It looks to me like they are a community that is willing to roll up their sleeves and help," said Hargens. "That is a good thing. So it is a pleasure to meet them and to hear from them."

Hargens says the school needs to open its nationwide search to attract a diverse set of teachers, and that busing students is a government issue that needs to stay out of educational settings. The Board of Education will choose the new superintendent Wednesday.
