CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Charleston County School District Interim Superintendent Don Kennedy met with members of the media Friday afternoon.

Kennedy took over as superintendent following the resignation of Dr. Gerrita Postlewait on Dec. 29.

He started working with the district as Chief Financial Officer back in 2004, serving for a couple of years and then he left for about a decade before coming back in 2018.

In his time away from Charleston, Kennedy worked for a number of different districts, including public schools in Baltimore, Boston, Bridgeport and Seattle.

During his time in Seattle, Kennedy was fired, along with the superintendent, for being at the head of the department in which funds were allegedly mismanaged.

Kennedy says coming back to the district in 2018 is the capstone of his career.
