Nationally-recognized Superintendent Noris Price's contract will now run through the end of 2022.

BALDWIN COUNTY, Ga. — The superintendent for Baldwin County Schools will be sticking around for at least another three years.

This week, the county's school board announced a contract extension for Superintendent Noris Price that will run through the end of 2022.

School spokesman Byron Wellman said she'll also get a $5,000 raise, making her salary $175,000 a year.

Back in September, Price won a national award from Communities in Schools for building bridges between students and the community. Communities in Schools is an organization dedicated to bringing community resources inside public schools to help with students' success.
