Perdue Names Duplin County Attorney To State School Board

Gov. Beverly Perdue wants an attorney and longtime school counselor on North Carolina's Board of Education.

Perdue said she appointed Reginald Kenan of Duplin County and Christine Greene of High Point to the state's governing panel for the public schools.

Kenan owns a law practice and serves on the Duplin County school board. Greene has worked as a Guilford County high school counselor and led the Guilford Institute for Leadership Development.

Perdue also announced Thursday the reappointments of board members Tricia Willoughby of Raleigh and Wayne McDevitt of Marshall to eight-year terms.

Three of the four appointments must be confirmed by the General Assembly. Greene's appointment does not because she is filling out a term.

    All that moving him to the state level will do is give him a bigger student body to destroy. He hasn't done anything for the kids in Duplin COunty except to make a mess of their lives. He has no children, therefore cannot relate to what children need, educationally. He should have never been on the DC Board of Education in the first place. Reginald along with Emily Manning and Wiley Doby need to be removed from education period. All they do is abuse their power and authority.

    I just hope he don't screw up the State's Educational Programs like he has helped to do in Duplin County. The Duplin County School Board is a joke; I hope the Duplin County Taxpayers vote them out of Office next election. They were the cause of over 1 millon dollars being wasted on attorney fees that should have gone to the schools. Kenan and his fellow School Board members are not interested in what's best for the children of Duplin County; they are just in for the power trip against the County Commissioners.
