Palm Beach County public schools will soon have a new leader from inhouse.
After three rounds of voting, school board members chose Donald Fennoy to be the district’s next superintendent.
Fennoy, 41, has been the district’s Chief Operating Officer since May 2016. He will be the first black superintendent of Palm Beach County schools.
“My role is to be a model for equity, to be a model for leading with dignity and respect, and also be a model for just listening,” Fennoy said.
