TIMMONSVILLE, SC (WMBF) – Florence School District 4 selected Dr. Fannie L. Mason to be the next superintendent of the district at a called meeting Tuesday night.

District official Annie L. Murray confirmed Dr. Mason, one of three candidates, was selected by the board.

Last month, parents in Timmonsville met the three candidates face-to-face, and the candidates each gave their vision for how to turn FSD4 around.

According to her resume, Dr. Mason has most recently worked as a Director of Exceptional Children at Scotland County Schools in Laurinburg, North Carolina. She has a PhD in Education, Curriculum and Instruction from Capella University in Minneapolis, Minnesota, a master of Education, Educational Leadership from South Carolina State University in Orangeburg, and a Masters of Science, Applied Psychology with a minor in Special Education from SCSU.

Dr. Mason will be brought on board as superintendent elect, replacing interim superintendent, Dr. Zona Jefferson, who will remain with the District “to keep the momentum started in recent months,” according to a news release from the district.

“This arrangement of retaining the interim superintendent while starting with the superintendent elect will allow for a smooth transition,” the district stated. “A transition we believe will last a few months. We are excited about the next phase and ask the public for its continued support as we welcome Dr. Mason to the Florence Four team.”
