During a special called meeting of the Macon County Board of Education Monday morning, Otto resident, Dr. Finley James Duncan was named as the interim superintendent, pending background checks and a salary negotiation.
“I appreciate the confidence of the board and the opportunity to serve Macon County as the interim superintendent,” said Dr. Duncan on Tuesday morning. “I hope to provide some direction and guidance for the district while the board searches for someone to take on the full time position.”
Although he has enjoyed retirement since 2006, Dr. Duncan felt that his 43 years of experience with the public education system could benefit Macon County schools while they search for a permanent replacement for Dr. Dan Brigman. Last week, Dr. Brigman notified the board of his resignation to assume a position as the Superintendent of Catawba County Schools on July 1.
