David’s energy, enthusiasm, passion for teaching and learning, and strong communication skills made him the best candidate, and an excellent fit for this position. His background in middle school and leadership experience will bring a unique perspective to South Davie, one that I am confident will be embraced by the staff, students, parents, and our community. We welcome Dr. Snapp to the Davie County Schools family, and look forward to his leadership at South Davie,” said Dr. Darrin Hartness, Superintendent.
