A veteran business teacher with 34 years of combined business and education experience, including a previous stint at the district's central office, has been named the new finance officer for Wayne County Public Schools.
Beverly Boltinhouse officially takes over the reins as assistant superintendent for fiscal services at month's end, when her predecessor, Nan Barwick retires.
Before becoming a classroom teacher, Mrs. Boltinhouse had 14 years of business and finance experience. The Fayetteville native has been a restaurant cashier, worked in the credit department of Sears, Roebuck and Co. in Columbus, Mississippi, and moved back to North Carolina in 1984 to become an operations manager at Seymour Johnson Federal Credit Union.
She entered public education in 1990 as a payroll supervisor with Wayne County Public Schools. In 1994, she became a lateral entry business teacher at Eastern Wayne Middle School and moved to Spring Creek High in 2004, where she has since been a business teacher.
Mrs. Boltinhouse earned a bachelor's degree in business administration with an emphasis in data processing from Mississippi University for Women and also holds a master's degree in business education from East Carolina University. She became a National Board Certified teacher in 2004. In addition to being a Microsoft Certified Trainer, she also has 14 Microsoft certifications.
"Our district welcomes Mrs. Boltinhouse back to the administrative offices and anticipates a smooth transition for her and our schools," the district's superintendent Dr. Steven Taylor said. "Mrs. Boltinhouse has a diverse business background, a personal understanding of our district's finance operations and processes, a strong work ethic and a passion for educating students. These qualities made her the ideal candidate for the position."
Mrs. Boltinhouse said she is pleased to be returning to her finance roots.
"In my new role as finance officer, I look forward to working with the district administration and the Board of Education to develop and maintain fiscally sound budgets and finance programs which can bring out the best in our schools," she said. "I also look forward to working with the County of Wayne staff as our two boards advance new school construction and other projects."
