COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - The Richland One Board of School Commissioners held a meeting on Tuesday, July 26, at the Stevenson Administration Building.

The board’s commissioners discussed several topics including employee percentage issues and the reassignment of the Lower Richland High School principal.

Residents at the meeting got the opportunity to voice their opinions on the reassignment of Dr. Ericka Hursey from Lower Richland High School and how the board was going to fill the district’s 218 teacher vacancies by the start of the school year.

Several parents believe Dr. Ericka Hursey was reassigned because of a personal issue with the Superintendent Dr. Witherspoon and voiced their desire for him to be fired.

Witherspoon did not respond to residents’ questions during the meeting.
