NINETY SIX, S.C. – Greenwood District 52 superintendent Mark Petersen is one of four finalists for the same position in Darlington County, it was announced Monday.

This is the second position for which Petersen has been a finalist this year. Petersen was named a finalist for the superintendent’s position in Anderson District 2, which is comprised of the Belton-Honea Path area, in February. Petersen has been District 52’s top administrator since 2009.

Petersen will be introduced to the public along with fellow finalist Dr. Terri H. Mozingo, current assistant superintendent of research and accountability for Durham Public Schools in Durham, N.C., at a reception being held at 5 p.m. Wednesday in the training room of the Darlington County School District Administration Building at 120 E. Smith Ave. in Darlington.

When reached by phone, District 52 board member Paul Cobb said he was unaware the Petersen had applied for the job.

“I was shocked when I heard about (Tuesday) morning,” Cobb said. “I haven’t heard anything from him about it. I’m not really sure what to think about it. This is a great school district and he seems to be happy here.”

Attempts to reach other board members by phone were unsuccessful.

“I’m in the prime of my life,” Petersen said when reached by phone Monday afternoon. “I have 12 years of experience as a superintendent and I am exploring my options. I’m not looking to leave Ninety Six, but that district has 11,000 students and 23 schools.”

Petersen and the other finalists will now undergo more in-depth interviews with the board.
