Cindy Elsberry celebrates last board meeting as Horry County Schools Superintendent

Cindy Elsberry, Horry County’s exiting superintendent, said Monday that she did not want to leave the position.

Elsberry made the comment after her final Horry County Board of Education meeting Monday – the school board’s final for the year.

“It’s a little sad because I’ve been going to board meetings as superintendent for 12 years now, and it’s odd to think of doing something different.”

Elsberry, who has not commented much about her departure since resigning on Nov. 17, would not say what sparked the resignation, but did say she wanted to stay superintendent.
