Crenshaw's Attorney Responds to Report on Lawsuit
web posted September 15, 2012
EDGEFIELD – Donald Gist, Attorney for
former Edgefield County School Superintendent Dr. Mary Rice Crenshaw,
contacted Edgefield Daily on Friday wanting to respond to what he said
were false assertions by BOE Chairman Brad Covar and Superintendent
Greg Anderson in a report published on Thursday.
Mr. Gist was asked to send a written response to the press release
issued by the School District contained in our previous report. Below
is his response.
"Dr. Mary Rice Crenshaw filed her lawsuit after attempts in December
2011 and in the Spring of 2012 to amicably resolve this matter short of
litigation. The statements represented to your newspaper that the
District was surprised by the lawsuit is totally false. The District’s
effort to portray Dr. Rice Crenshaw as incompetent is completely
ridiculous. Dr. Rice Crenshaw lead the Edgefield County Schools in a
competent manner," Gist said.
"This is verified by the Board’s own admission that she was terminated
without cause. If in fact she was not performing her job, why would the
Board not let her and the public know that. This Board’s response that
out of their generosity, “we went out of our way to treat her with
respect,” is totally false. This Board was certainly no friend of Dr.
Mary Rice Crenshaw. In fact, this Board which terminated my client,
continuously harassed and intimidated my client with threats of
reprisals after this Board came to power. I intend to represent my
client fully and had no intentions of going public with this matter
until I read the article dated Wednesday, September 12, 2012 , which is
totally inaccurate and a misrepresentation of the truth."
Editor's Note: Edgefield Daily presented the information provided to us
in a press release by the School District and information from the
wording of the lawsuit. The article is
factually correct throughout on
the claims of the suit and the responses by Anderson and Covar.
