The Mississippi Board of Education (MBOE) has appointed a new Interim Superintendent for the state’s school district. Dr. Charles L. Williams, a veteran educator and administrator with over 30 years of experience, will take the helm of the district on an interim basis beginning in January 2021.

Dr. Williams has served in a variety of roles during his extensive career, including Assistant Superintendent of Instructional Services, Assistant Principal, and Principal.

Dr. Williams is a highly qualified and well-regarded educator. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Education from the University of Southern Mississippi, a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Mississippi State University, and an Educational Doctorate from the University of Mississippi.

The MBOE has expressed confidence in Dr. Williams’ ability to take the reins of the district and lead it in the right direction. Board Chairman John Kelly stated, “Dr. Williams is a highly-skilled and technically-adept leader who brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our district. We know he will make a positive impact on our students, staff, and community.”

Dr. Williams has responded to the appointment with enthusiasm. “I am incredibly honored to serve in this capacity,” he said. “I look forward to working with the Board of Education and the community to ensure our students receive the best education possible.”

Dr. Williams is set to begin his tenure as Interim Superintendent in January 2021. The MBOE will continue to search for a permanent Superintendent, but until then, they are confident that Dr. Williams will provide the district with the leadership necessary for success.
