GREENVILLE — Greenville Public School superintendent Dr. Harvey Franklin confirmed this morning that David Barrow will again take over the duties as athletic director.
Barrow, who last served as AD during the 2008-09 term, takes over for Ernie Watson, who worked double duties as boys basketball coach and AD.
Franklin said Barrow’s familiarity with the community and school system was the key to the hire. Barrow worked as one of three assistant principals last year at Greenville-Weston High.
Attempts to reach Barrow by press time were unsuccessful. Look for more details in a later edition of the Delta Democrat Times.
Barrow takes over an athletic department which has suffered a huge hit, losing six of its sports to suspension due to an $163,000 cut in the athletic budget.
A open forum has been scheduled for Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Washington County Convention Center to discuss the issue. The public is strongly encouraged to attend the event.
