New Superintendent Heads Christina School District

Feb 15, 2012


            Delaware’s largest school district is getting a new superintendent.

            Longtime Delaware educator and district employee Freeman Williams has been named to head the Christina School District.

            His appointment follows the departure of Marcia Lyles, who told the board last December…she did not want to renew her contract.

            Williams began as a social studies teacher in 1975 at a middle school near Newark and worked his way up to acting superintendent for Christina and Appoquinimink school districts.

            He takes the helm on July 1st.

            The board’s job search did not include a public announcement of any finalists for the post.
