The Richmond County board of education selected Angela Pringle as their next superintendent Tuesday, officially ending their search just days before current superintendent Frank Roberson leaves his office.
The board took a roll call vote to approve Pringle’s selection, which passed 7-2. Board members Alex Howard and Jack Padgett were the only board members present to vote against Pringle’s hiring. Board member Frank Dolan did not attend the meeting.
Pringle has been working in the DeKalb County school system since 2007, beginning as a high school principal and working her way up to Region 2 superintendent in 2010. As a superintendent, she has overseen 18,000 students in 23 elementary schools, three middle schools, five high schools and two alternative programs. She has managed a $7.7 million budget and 1,927 employees.
