      Sumter School District hires interim superintendent

      Dr J. Frank Baker, former superintendent of Sumter School District 2, was elected Monday in a vote of 5-2.

      SUMTER, SC (WACH) -- The Sumter School Board elected an interim superintendent to temporarily replace Randolph Bynum, who announced he was stepping down about a week ago.

      Dr J. Frank Baker, former superintendent of Sumter School District 2, was elected Monday in a vote of 5-2.

      Parents and teachers say they hope Baker will be what the district needs to improve a faulty administration.

      Baker has lived in Sumter and worked in education for the past 40 years.
