Craven County School Board Kelli Muse Frances Boomer Wendy Miller | #Education

Craven County Board of Education member Kelli Muse publicly criticized the district’s leadership in April. Half a year later, there may be a different opinion. 

Muse previously questioned the lack of transparency and school staffing vacancies. Superintendent Wendy Miller was hired by the board in July. 

For the short time in the position, Miller and the Board of Education have been challenged with protests against mask mandates and disruptions during board meetings.

Muse was asked her thoughts on Miller’s work with CCS as superintendent and she declined to comment. 

A different school board member, Chairperson Frances Boomer, spoke up and commended Miller’s this week for her focus on pressing issues.

One of which is bringing a higher level of morale within the system. Morale was said to be low at the end of last school year, previously by Muse.

“People feel that she (Miller) values them and values relationships,” said Boomer. “People don’t really know who someone is until they know that they care about them and that has been a strong trait for her.
