To the editor:
On behalf of the Union County Board of School Trustees, I would like to thank Dr. David Eubanks for his commitment to Union County Schools and the Union community.
Dr. David Eubanks retired from Spartanburg School District 6 shortly after the completion of the Dorman Campus building project. Since 2002, Dr. Eubanks answered the call with a “yes” to serve as Union’s Interim Superintendent on three separate occasions. While never interested in serving long term as Superintendent, he was willing to work as Interim Superintendent for a total of four years.
While previously serving as Interim Superintendent, Dr. Eubanks led the district through the discussions, finance, building plans and construction of the new Jonesville K-8 school and Sims Middle School building projects. He oversaw the projects to completion.
Dr. Eubanks has so much experience and so many skills but the Trustees were particularly impressed with his knowledge of budgets, finance, and construction of new schools. He is an expert problem solver and expert solution finder. All were impressed with his ability to listen and find great solutions to concerns. He worked tirelessly long hours carrying out all the responsibilities of the Superintendent. His approachable, professional manner allowed him to be successful with students, staff, parents, community members, and the School Board.
Two particular accomplishments of this last five months serving as Interim Superintendent are: overseeing the AdvancED Accreditation process for which our schools did well and assisting the Board with the process of the new Superintendent search. With the Board’s hiring of Dr. William Roach, we are confident Dr. Eubanks has left our schools in a great position.
Dr. Eubanks completed his third term as Interim Superintendent on 5-31-16. He is a great friend to Union County. We wish him well and know he is looking forward to more time with his family and to enjoy his retirement and travel.
Dr. David Eubanks completed his five month commitment as Interim Superintendent for Union County Schools 5-31-16. He stated he has enjoyed his time in Union but is very much looking forward to retirement, family times and travel.
