NEW HANOVER COUNTY — New Hanover County Schools’ top leader has been honored by his peers.

New Hanover County Schools Superintendent Dr. Charles Foust was named 2024-25 Regional Superintendent of the Year. The honor is decided upon by the 12 school district superintendents in the southeast region, considered district 2.

“I am humbled by this honor and I have so much gratitude to my fellow superintendents throughout our region for their support,” Foust said in a press release. “As leaders we try to illuminate the path to excellence and empower teachers and students, but we don’t do this work alone. This recognition is a testament to the collective dedication of our entire educational community.”

Foust moves on to the state-level competition to face off against seven other regions, and compete for the A. Craig Phillips State Superintendent of the Year award.

Foust has worked for New Hanover County Schools since September 2020 and has been in education for more than 25 years. He has overseen the district rank number 15 out of 115 districts statewide.

According to a district press release, Foust expanded academic and CTE Pathway partnerships with Cape Fear Community College and UNCW.

He also has facilitated more funding from the General Assembly, including $3.2 million for a school safety pilot program, $210,000 to go toward tutoring and $2.8 million for Wilmington Chamber to expand the Career Leadership Academy for seventh grades in the district.

Foust helped form the Turnaround Task Force with community and business stakeholders to improve low-performing schools. So far, five schools have been removed from the list.

In addition to Foust’s honor, the Southeast Regional Principal of the Year was announced in January and went to Christianne May, of Castle Hayne Elementary.
