Board of Education elects Campbell, Kinton, Striebinger to key board offices

BEAUFORT – The Beaufort County Board of Education voted today to elevate Vice Chair Earl Campbell to the chairmanship, replacing Patricia Felton-Montgomery, who resigned from the board last month.

Secretary Geri Kinton was elected vice chair, and Board member David Striebinger was elected secretary.  Their terms will run through the next scheduled officer elections in January 2019.

Campbell’s 27 years of service on the Board make him its longest-serving current member.  Campbell served in the U.S. Army, including two tours in Vietnam as a combat medic, and earned his GED while in the Army.  After retiring from the service, he returned to Beaufort and attended the Technical College of the Lowcountry and the University of South Carolina Beaufort to study business and criminal justice.  After college, he worked with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control and later with a home construction company.
