O’Neal names new head of school

The O’Neal School Board of Trustees has announced that Dr. William Dale McInnis will be the next head of school.

“The Board unanimously agreed that Dr. McInnis is the ideal candidate for O’Neal’s next head of school,” said O’Neal Board of Trustees Chair Dr. Lynda Acker.

McInnis has 32 years of experience in education working in the North Carolina Community College System. Most recently, he served as president at Richmond Community College for 14 years.

“His experience as an effective leader, administrator, and educator will benefit our faculty, staff, and students,” said Stan Bradshaw, chair of the O’Neal Search Committee.

McInnis has a doctorate in education from NC State University and a master’s in business administration from Campbell University. He has served on several state-wide committees for the North Carolina Community College System, including funding formula, faculty salary reviews, and strategic planning.

“I am excited at the prospect of helping to build on the School’s excellent reputation and brand and rich history of success,” said McInnis.

“Dale has a record of proven financial, personnel, and operational skills,” said the school in a press release. “His passion for helping students and expanding minds and futures is strong.”

McInnis is expected to begin his tenure as head of school following his retirement from Richmond Community College.
