To the editor: Your article last week, “Longevity issues plaque superintendent position,” was an excellent history lesson and makes a compelling case for why Katie McGee’s contract needs to be renewed and soon.

With the recent notable exception of Dr. McGee, Marion Wise and John Jones, Brunswick County children have significantly suffered from a series of “under-performing” leaders in the past.

Having served in senior management positions in state education since 1983, I have witnessed this firsthand. Now, being a full-time resident of Brunswick County, I have a more personal interest in maintaining the educational excellence that Dr. McGee has brought to the schools.

Let’s not repeat history. Brunswick County’s future is critically dependent on the quality of our schools.
