Florence One School Board Chair Porter Stewart announced Wednesday the withdrawal of Dr. Scott Mercer, Superintendent of Spartanburg 2, from the search process to fill the position of Superintendent of Schools in Florence One.

Stewart also said,
"Florence One is poised to build upon its successes and to step up to the next level toward excellence in education for all of the children of our school district, and our board is confident that our next educational leader will emerge from our comprehensive professional search process."
Stewart also stated that the three remaining candidates are scheduled to meet and greet community members through the following schedule: Monday, March 24th, Dr. Terri Mozingo, Florence Little Theater; and on Monday, April 7th, Dr. James Winbush, Francis Marion University Performing Arts Center.
