From the Harford County Education Foundation:

The Harford County Education Foundation will host a Welcome Reception for the county’s new superintendent of public schools Dr. Sean Bulson on Wednesday, Aug. 8, at Rockfield Manor in Bel Air from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.


With 23 years of experience in public education, Dr. Bulson comes to Harford County from University of North Carolina where he served as Vice President for the Division of University and P-12 Partnerships.

“We look forward to working with Dr. Bulson as he begins his tenure leading public education for our nearly 40,000 students,” said Debora Gavin Merlock, president and founder of the Harford County Education Foundation. “Together, we can strengthen our work in providing every child with the educational resources they need to participate in high quality learning so they can find success in school and life.”


“The mission of the Harford County Education Foundation is an important one. Personalizing learning to address the needs of the child is an important step in accessing a quality education,” said Bulson. “I applaud the work of the foundation and look forward to becoming a part of the team that will foster life-long success for every child in Harford County.”

In addition to welcoming Bulson, the event will also feature an awards ceremony for the Harford County Rising Star Society. The Harford County Rising Star Society is an association of like-minded individuals and businesses who have pledged $1,000 or more to local education initiatives through the Harford County Education Foundation. Select members of the society who have gone above and beyond in their support will be honored.
