NORTH LEWISBURG – The Triad Board of Education will meet in special session at 8 a.m. today to vote on the hiring of Vickie Hoffman as superintendent, effective Aug. 1.

The Board of Education looks forward to working with Ms. Hoffman and seeing our district continue to move toward achieving all of our educational goals.”
