School board solidifies superintendent
The Chesterfield County School Board has unanimously approved Dr. Chan Anderson to serve as superintendent. The action was taken during a school board work session last night. Anderson has been the interim superintendent since July 1 when he succeeded Dr. Harrison Goodwin, who accepted the superintendency of Kershaw County School District.
“Since his first day as interim superintendent, Dr. Anderson hit the ground running as the leader of our district and never looked back,” commented board chair Chad Vick. “We knew that he would do a good job as interim superintendent. His abilities to lead, listen, and communicate with all the district stakeholders gave us the confidence that he is the leader who can take our school district and students to the next level.
“Dr. Anderson joined the district in 2013 as the Executive Director of Personnel and went on to serve as Assistant Superintendent. He used his previous nine years in our district to his advantage and is placing our district on a course to experience student and educator success,” added Vick.
“I love leading, teaching, coaching, and helping others win. Since I started as the interim superintendent, I have been able to do all four every day. I am grateful to God for blessing me with the opportunity to lead our school district and I am honored and humbled by our board for their confidence in my leadership,” said Anderson. “With anything worthwhile, there will be some challenges along the way, but on behalf of our children, we are going to win for them. They deserve it, their parents and families deserve it, as well as all our wonderful employees and Chesterfield County residents.”
