SUMTER COUNTY, SC (WIS) - During a special school board meeting Monday night, the Sumter School Board of Trustees announced their interim superintendent following the retirement of Frank Baker.

Hamm will take over on Aug. 1.

Baker's retirement comes after a myriad of financial shortfalls befell the school district.

Baker served as the superintendent of the Sumter County School district since 2013. He previously served as the superintendent at Sumter County School District 2, before consolidation.

His current contract shows he makes around $185,000 a year. That contract was renewed back in January 2016 and would have ended in June 2020.
