Pender County Schools to name new superintendent

PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — It looks like the leader of another North Carolina school district will soon take over Pender County Schools.

According to the Roanoke-Chowan News-Herald Bertie County Schools Superintendent Dr. Steven Hill will take the same job in Pender County.

The Pender County School Board has called a special meeting for 4:30 p.m. “for the selection, approval and introduction of a new [s]uperintendent.”

The News-Herald reports Hill submitted his resignation to the Bertie County School Board earlier this week. The paper says he came to Bertie County in December 2016 and was approved by the school board in January. He had spent the previous two years working with STEM East in Greenville. Prior to working with that group, Hill built his career within an entrepreneur business and the North Carolina state government system. A key part of his work has been in the public education system, serving as a teacher, principal, and secondary education director in Jones and Lenoir counties as well as his earlier work with the NC Department of Crime Control and Public Safety.

If approved for the position, Hill would replace Terri Cobb, who announced earlier this year she would retire Oct. 1. Cobb has been Pender County Schools Superintendent since 2012.
