The Calhoun County Board of Education has selected a new superintendent after months of searching. In a 4 to 3 vote, board members selected Donald Turner to serve as new county superintendent during a called meeting earlier today.
Turner has worked in Calhoun County Schools for 29 years. The board of education focused heavily on finding a Calhoun County native who was right for the job. Turner says not only is he a proud product of Calhoun County, but he plans to take this administration to the next level.
Board of Education Chairman, Tobi Burt believes this decision is a huge win for the school system. Turner began filling his new role as superintendent today after this morning’s board meeting.
