MONCKS CORNER, SC (WBTW/WCBD)- The Berkeley County School board has hired Dr. Eddie Ingram as the new Berkeley County Schools Superintendent.

On July 20, Darlington County Schools Superintendent Dr. Eddie Ingram said he was a finalist for another job.

“This opportunity in Berkeley County presents new professional challenges too attractive to not explore,” Dr. Ingram said in an email to district staff last month.

Dr. Ingram was one of three finalists for the job.

“We appreciate all Dr. Ingram has done for our students, schools and community over the past four years,” said Jamie Morphis, chairman of the Darlington County Board of Education in a press release Wednesday. “Sometimes you are presented with professional opportunities too good to ignore, and we wish Dr. Ingram all the best in his new role in Berkeley County.”

The Darlington County Board of Education will hold a special-called meeting Thursday, August 10 to discuss employment matters regarding the superintendent. The meeting will be held beginning at 8 a.m. in the training room of the DCSD Administrative Office
