Greg Derry

The McDuffie County School Board elected Greg Derry, who represents Super District 2, as the board chairman Tuesday morning during it’s work session meeting.
Derry recently completed a four-year term as the board member representing District 5. However, he sought election to the Super District 2 seat and defeated incumbent Bob Smith, a former Thomson High School principal.
A motion by Dorothy Hart nominated Derry. The board voted 6-0 to approve Derry as board president. Boardmember Dexter Lovins abstained from voting. The board also selected a vice chairman with a 7-0 vote to affirm Ella Samuels, who is elected to represent District 3. Samuels was nominated by Bea Hart-Moss.
