The Richmond County board of education selected Angela Pringle as their next superintendent Tuesday, officially ending their search just days before current superintendent Frank Roberson leaves his office.
The board took a roll call vote to approve Pringle’s selection, which passed 7-2. Board members Alex Howard and Jack Padgett were the only board members present to vote against Pringle’s hiring. Board member Frank Dolan did not attend the meeting.
After winning their first state championship in 2013, the Fighting Irish were ranked No. 1 in Class A in the Georgia Sports Writers Association preseason poll. When Aquinas visits Class AAA Glenn Hills on Friday, it will mark the first time the Irish will play a game as a top-ranked team. They didn’t ascend to No. 1 until after they beat Calvary Day in the state championship.
