Eddie Ingram hired while national search for a permanent superintendent continues

Horry County Schools is the third-largest school district in South Carolina, behind only Greenville and Charleston.

After a nationwide search for a replacement for Rick Maxey, Horry County Schools has chosen an interim superintendent.

Following his appointment by the board of education on Wednesday, Eddie Ingram will assume leadership of the district with 48,000 students starting on July 1st.

The district said on Thursday that Ingram has worked in education for 42 years. He earned a doctorate in education in 2002 from East Carolina University. From 2009 to 2013, he served as superintendent of Franklin County Schools in North Carolina.

Prior to retiring in 2021, he served as superintendent of Darlington County School District starting in 2013 and Berkeley County School District starting in 2017. He served as interim superintendent of Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools in North Carolina and interim executive director of Foxborough Regional Charter School in Massachusetts during his retirement.

As of Thursday, the Horry County Board of Education was receiving proposals from superintendent search firms. At the next meeting, these firms will have the opportunity to present their proposals to the Board. The Board will then engage a firm to assist with a comprehensive national search for the District’s next superintendent.”

As the district’s leader since 2015, Maxey notified board members earlier this month that he is ready to retire after 35 years in education.

Maxey was highly regarded. Eddie Ingram has big shoes to fill, even if only temporarily.
