The Calvert County Board of Education unanimously voted to appoint Daniel Curry, 61, the new superintendent of Calvert County Public Schools at its meeting Thursday. Curry will begin his new position July 1.
At the meeting, Curry detailed a recent trip he took to Calvert County, and in an effort to “find out what was really going on,” he got his hair cut. When his hair dresser told him she and her husband moved their family to Calvert County for the school system, he knew he found a good place.
Curry was formerly the superintendent of Lake Forest School District in Felton, Del., since 2003. Originally from West Virginia, Curry served a total of 29 years as a teacher, principal and superintendent in that state before moving to Delaware. Curry was named Delaware Superintendent of the Year for 2011. He is past president of the Delaware Chief School Officers and presently serves on the Executive Committee of the American Association of School Administrators representing Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. This is his 40th year in education.
