WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- About 50 people showed up Wednesday evening to ask Dr. Rick Holliday about his plans if selected as the new Superintendent of New Hanover County Schools.
Holliday, one of three finalists, has been with the school system for almost 30 years. He has served as the Assistant Superintendent since 2007. Before that, Holliday served as principal at Laney High School, Williston Middle School and Lakeside High School. He attended East Carolina University, received his Masters Degree from UNCW and earned his Doctor of Education Degree from Nova Southeastern University in Florida.
"New is not always better," Holliday said. "I mean my whole concept is what's the best for New Hanover County Schools? It might mean a new person. It might mean me."
Thursday the public will have the chance to ask questions of Dr. Tim Markley, Superintendent of Catawba County Schools. The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. at the Dale K. Spencer Administration Building on S. 15th Street.
