SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. — For the first time, we are hearing from the next Seminole County superintendent.
Serita Beamon was hired to take the place of Dr. Walt Griffin, who is retiring after this school year.
Beamon was hired after a controversial reversal by the school board after they initially voted to hire Lake County Schools assistant superintendent Chard Farnsworth.
Beamon said she came through that controversy stronger, and admits that she has big shoes to fill but is ready for the challenge.
“I didn’t expect the twist and turns, but at the end of the day I am truly excited to be the next superintendent,” Beamon said.
She said being superintendent has been her dream job, and her desire to serve the community hasn’t waivered. She has been focused on healing the district and making sure they get to know who she is.
Beamon is a Sanford native and product of Seminole County Schools.
