Dr. Charles King, a former Kershaw County Board of School Trustees member representing Seat 8, will attempt to recapture his previous position in the upcoming election. King, an east Camden resident, previously held the seat from 2007-2010.

Currently the associate superintendent for curriculum and instruction in the Chester County School District, King said he brings a multifaceted knowledge base to the table.

“I have dedicated my career to the betterment of public education and in my current role I intensively deal with instruction, finance (state and federal dollars), personnel issues, technology and operational matters,” King said in a press release. “The most important thing to me is putting our resources where they have the most impact, and that is in the classroom.”

As a private business owner, former teacher and administrator in Kershaw County, King indicated that he has a lot of experience to draw from with regard to the betterment of the school district.

“I am well-versed in the educational arena from many perspectives. However, I have one overriding premise before I make any decision in my job and that is to consider the impact the decision will have on the welfare, safety, and education of a child,” he said.

King also said that he believes that everyone should have a measure of accountability, from the district level to the classroom and all in between. From the adoption of new curriculum standards and testing instrument to the consideration of the next step with facilities equalization, King said he is “ready and willing” to take on the task and as before, he will be a strong representative for his constituents.

“I have had countless folks contact me about running again for the school board … in less than one day I had over 300 “likes” on my newly created “King for KCSB” Facebook page,” he said. “I believe I have a lot to offer and I will always do what is in the best interest of our students and teachers.”

In addition to a doctorate degree in educational leadership, King holds several other advanced degrees and leadership certifications. He is married to Dr. Wendy King (a local veterinarian) and has two grown children (Charlie and Beth) who he proudly says are graduates of Kershaw County schools.
