MADISON, MS (WLBT) - The Madison County Board of Education has announced the selection of Mrs. Charlotte Seals as Superintendent of Education.

“Mrs. Seals is an outstanding educator and leader with a proven track-record of moving our schools forward. The Board has full confidence that under her leadership Madison County Schools will continue to be the Mark of Excellence in education for our state. We look forward to working with Mrs. Seals as she leads MCS to even greater heights,” said Board of Education President Wayne Jimenez.

A 30-year veteran with the Madison County School District, Mrs. Seals has served most recently as interim superintendent and assistant superintendent for instructional services.

She was named interim after superintendent Kimber Halliburton abruptly resigned in April. The State Department of Education later said Halliburton was never a licensed administrator in Mississippi.

Prior to service at the district level she served as both a teacher and principal.

While principal at Madison Station Elementary School, she implemented the award-winning Arts Create Excellence Program. Madison Station became a model school for arts integration in the state and regionally. As assistant superintendent, Mrs. Seals has been instrumental in establishing Madison County Schools as one of the premiere public school districts in the state.

Seals will begin service as Superintendent of Madison County Schools immediately.
