VIDEO: Meet the new Spotsylvania schools superintendent

 I just got back to the office after chatting with incoming Superintendent Shelley K. Redinger this morning.

 She’s at the central offices today, moving into her office and starting to get to know school division staff. She couldn’t make it to her car and back without people coming up to greet her and chat.

 After I left, I understand she was to make an appearance at a finance staff meeting where people were dressed in pink and wearing tiaras. You’ll have to talk to Chief Financial Officer LaShahn Gaines for the details on that, but Mrs. Gaines looked elegant in her deep pink suit.

I’ll have a story soon on Dr. Redinger’s plans as she begins her tenure – officially on Friday.

UPDATE: We’ll have this story in Thursday’s Free Lance-Star.
