ow we know who Bedford County Public School's next superintendent will be. Dr. Douglas R. Schuch was introduced to the public at a press conference on Friday.
Although Dr. Schuch is taking command at a difficult budgetary time, he will face a better situation than Dr. James Blevins faced when he came 11 years ago.
For one thing, Dr. Blevins is leaving while in the good graces of the school board. Back in 1998, the school board was about ready to tar and feather Dr. John Kent and ride him out of town on a rail.
