Come May, Greene County Public Schools will welcome a new superintendent.

Wednesday night the school board announced the appointment of Andrea Whitmarsh, who currently serves as the vice superintendent, to fill the position.

Whitmarsh says she can't wait to take on her new role. She says she wants to continue to improve the schools' curriculum - especially in the technology department.

Whitmarsh says they are teaching students differently today from just 10 years ago. She says, because technology continues to progress, the curriculum must keep up - and that means teaching students how to understand it and use it to their benefit.

Whitmarsh feels they are up to the challenge.

"It's filled with incredible people from our teachers to our administrators, our support staff, our parents and our community members and that's what I'm most looking forward to, just leading the school division to achieve success," she said.

The board originally received 22 applications for the superintendent position.

Whitmarsh has spent the past 10 years working within the Greene County school system. She will officially start as superintendent May 1.
