Kinser hired as new school superintendent of Tazewell County

TAZEWELL, Va. — A new school superintendent has been hired for Tazewell County.

The county school board met in a closed-door executive session Monday to consider the appointment of a new division superintendent. Following the meeting, the board voted to hire current Assistant School Superintendent Christine Kinser as the county’s new school superintendent.

Kinser was hired due to her significant instructional knowledge and broad educational experience, according to a statement released by the school board Tuesday.

The motion to hire Kinser was approved on a unanimous vote.

The board then instructed school system attorney Alan McGraw to take all actions necessary to enter into a contract employing Kinser as the school system’s new superintendent.

Kinser succeeds current School Superintendent Dr. Michaelene A. Meyer, who is resigning from the position effective June 30.
