The Rowan County school system has a new Superintendent.

Assistant Superintendent John Maxey was named Wednesday night by the Rowan County School Board to replace Marvin Moore, who retires June 30th.  Maxey was chosen over three other finalists for the post, and board chairman Rick Whelan believes the transition into his new role will be a seamless one…

Maxey has worked for the Rowan school district since 2009 when he started as its technology director. He later worked his way into the Assistant Superintendent’s role.

Maxey officially takes over as the school system’s top official on July 1st.
