The Dothan City School Board voted 3-4 Monday to appoint Dennis Veal to the position.
The only hesitation is Veal has a DUI on his record and some school board members’ object to that. The appointment is under the condition that Veal doesn't have any other charges on his record. School Board Chairman Jim Hemby voted against Veal.
Superintendent Dr. Leon Hobbs recommended Veal after a panel of Northview teachers and administrators selected him from a pool of four candidates.
