Board to hire new leader on Tuesday
Social Circle Schools

SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. - The Social Circle Board of Education is set to announce its selection Tuesday for the new superintendent of Social Circle City Schools.

The board will meet in a called meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday to announce which of three candidates were chosen to fill the shoes of departing Superintendent Todd McGhee, as well as vote on the new superintendent’s contract.

The meeting will be held in the board office on Alcova Drive and will be open to the public.

The meeting will serve as the culmination of a months-long search for McGhee’s replacement after McGhee announced at the beginning of the calendar year he would step down at the end of June with the conclusion of his contract.

The board has held numerous meeting since then, selecting criteria for the new superintendent, searching for candidates, interviewing a selection of 10 semi-finalists and finally three finalists before settling on whoever will be announced Tuesday.

The board’s final selection will be one of the three chosen finalists: Robbie Hooker, Kelli McCain and Angela Morton.

Hooker is the currently the assistant superintendent for high schools for Henry County Schools; McCain is currently the principal of Henry Partee Elementary School in Gwinnett County; and Morton is currently the assistant superintendent for teaching and learning in the Barrow County School System.

All three have Ph.D.s in education and have experience as both principals and in the central office as system administrators at one level or another.

The new superintendent will begin July 1.
