22 June 2022- WCPS announced this afternoon that Dr. David Sovine would be named Superintendent of the school district. This comes after a long, extensive search process throughout the district. Below is a statement from the Washington County Republican Party leadership.

The Washington County Republican Party Congratulates Dr. David T Sovine on his selection this afternoon in a split vote by our Board of Education. We welcome him to our conservative county and wish him well. While we all know he has some big shoes to fill by the retiring Dr. Boyd Michael, we hope his tenure is filled with success. The traditional education of nearly 22,000 students and their families in this county depend on it. 

We also wish Dr. Boyd Michael well in his retirement after 43 years of dedicated service to our Public Education System. We thank him for his devotion to duty and steadfast support of our students, families, staff, and communities. 

Thank you.
Very Respectfully,
Jerry DeWolf, Chair

Washington County Republican Central Committee
