Outgoing superintendent of schools receives framed painting of Kent as parting gift

ROCK HALL — Monday night’s Board of Education meeting was likely the last for retiring Kent County Public Schools Superintendent Karen Couch.

Her official last day is June 30.

Mary Boswell-McComas will begin her tenure as superintendent on Monday, July 1.

The school board on Monday ratified a four-year contract for McComas, who was in the audience that night with her husband.

She has nearly three decades of experience in public education, having started as a social studies teacher with Harford County Public Schools.

She is currently the principal of Sparrows Point Middle School in Baltimore County.

Also during the Monday, June 10 meeting, the Board of Education presented Couch with a painting of Kent County by Kent County High School art teachers Noel Morris and Stephanie Spencer and students Mary Jane Joiner, Katelyn Kerns, Taylor Mangels and Maurya McKenzie.

The matting around the framed painting was signed by colleagues, family and friends who attended a career and retirement celebration for Couch in May.

The event also raised more than $2,600 for the Kent County Public Schools Education Foundation Fund.

Trish McGee, owner and publisher of The Evening Enterprise, is an elected member of the Kent County Board of Education.
