Although he has two years left on his contract, Superintendent Dr. Dan Brigman announced late Monday afternoon that he will be leaving the Macon County School district on or before June 30.
During Monday night's board meeting for the Catawba County School Board, Dr. Brigman beat out 27 other applicants and was unanimously appointed to take over as their superintendent on July 1 under a four-year contract with a beginning salary of $160,000.
“Serving as superintendent of the Macon County School System has been a very rewarding experience,” said Dr. Brigman in his media announcement. “My wife, children and I have enjoyed our time in Macon County and offer our sincere gratitude to the members of this great community and school system for the overwhelming support provided to us since our arrival approximately six years ago.”
