John Moncure, headmaster of the Montessori School of Camden (MSC), recently announced his candidacy for a seat on Camden City Council in November’s general election.

Moncure and his wife, Anne, moved to Camden in 1997 after he retired from the U.S. Army as a lieutenant colonel. He currently serves as MSC’s headmaster, a position he previously held from 1998 to 2004.

“I love Camden and look forward to serving the community and continuing the planning for a prosperous future set in place by the current city leadership,” Moncure said in a press release. “As a councilman, I hope to bring a broad range of experience and critical thinking skills to the challenges that are sure to face us.”

Moncure said his experience includes service on several national and international Montessori boards, and living abroad in Germany, France, India and China. He is a member of the national Montessori Leaders Collaborative and was a founding member of the S.C. Montessori Alliance.

In Camden, he said, he has participated in local organizations dedicated to the betterment of the community, including membership in the Camden Rotary Club; and the boards of directors of First Steps of Kershaw County, the Kershaw County Historical Society and United Way of Kershaw County.

Moncure said he has authored three books and numerous articles, graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, and holds a Ph.D. in European history from Cornell University.
