Onslow County Schools is proud to announce that Deputy Superintendent Dr. Beth Folger was recently awarded the NCASCD Distinguished Educator Award.  

NCASCD, the North Carolina Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, awards this honor annually to a member of the association who has made significant contributions in the areas of curriculum and instruction as a teacher or administrator. They measure those contributions based on innovative program initiation, improved or increased student achievement, and a demonstrated increase in efficiency and effectiveness.  

Dr. Folger came to Onslow County in 2015 and has worked in public education for more than 28 years. She has taught elementary and middle school and served as an administrator at the school and district levels. Since 2016, Dr. Folger has served as the OCS Deputy Superintendent and she oversees PreK-12 Instruction, Research and Accountability, Human Resources, and Leadership Development.  

“She will tell you that this honor is a reflection of the team and the work that they have done, which is very true,” said Will Laine, Executive Director of Secondary Education. “However, we all realize that leadership does truly matter. I know that I am not alone in saying that I feel very blessed to have Dr. Folger leading the academic efforts for the Onslow County Schools.” 

Dr. Folger was officially recognized at the NCASCD Conference in February.
