MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (WCSC) - The chief educator in the Berkeley County School District announced he will retire.
Dr. Eddie Ingram made the announcement at Tuesday’s school board meeting.
Ingram said he let the board chairman know in October he planned to retire no sooner than Aug. 1. They mutually agreed to make the announcement after the holidays.
Ingram said he plans to work tirelessly over the next several months toward a smooth transition and give the board ample time to find a new superintendent.
He said if no one is selected before Aug. 1, he will postpone his retirement until someone is chosen.
Ingram became superintendent in 2017.
