    The Christina School Board appointed a new superintendent who has roots in Delaware at its meeting last night. 

    Following a 9-month-long search, board members gave the thumbs up to Richard Gregg, one of three finalists who participated in school tours, a public presentation and an interview earlier this month. 

    Gregg is a University of Delaware and Wilmington University alumnus, where he earned his bachelor’s and master’s degress, respectively. The Glasgow High School graduate currently serves as assistant superintendent for the Penn-Delco School District in Aston, PA. Prior to that, he served as principal of Penncrest High School.

    Gregg also has a lot of experience in various Delaware schools and districts in and out of the classroom. His resume includes stints at New Castle County Vocational Technical School District in Delaware, where he was the director of instruction; he was the lead administrator for the design and planning of St. Georges Technical High School; named principal at Brandywine High School and Concord High School in the Brandywine School District; served as assistant principal at Christiana High School in the Christina School District.

    Gregg’s nine years of teaching experience includes teaching social studies at Hodgson Vo-Tech High School, Smyrna High School, Caravel Academy, and North East High School in Maryland. He was also an adjunct professor at Cabrini College.

    An effective start date and salary have not been determined. Both will be negotiated with the board.
