Beaufort County Schools Superintendent Jeff Moss, 47, was airlifted to Pitt County Memorial Hospital with “health concerns” Thursday afternoon, according to Sarah Hodges, public information officer for the Beaufort County Schools.
Moss was in the hospital’s cardiac-intensive-care unit, according to a hospital spokeswoman reached by telephone Thursday night. Another hospital spokeswoman declined to provide information about Moss’ condition, citing patient-privacy laws.
Initially, Moss was taken to Beaufort County Hospital. Later, he was moved to Pitt County Memorial Hospital.
Moss has been superintendent of the school system since January 2004. He replaced Tony Parker, who left to become superintendent of the Johnston County school system. Before coming to Beaufort County, Moss was superintendent of the Stokes County school system for four years.
Moss has been rehearsing for the upcoming Dancing With OUR Stars competition set for Sept. 12 at the Turnage Theater. The event is a fundraiser for Eagle’s Wings, a food pantry based in Washington.
Moss holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Pembroke State University. He received a master’s degree in vocational administration from North Carolina A&T State University and a doctorate in educational administration from South Carolina State University.
