DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -

Brandy White conducted his first duties as superintendent-elect for Houston County Schools at the recent board meeting.

The personnel meeting revolved around filling positions within the schools before the new year.

White was able to conduct the interviews and pick the candidates for the positions and although David Sewell is still currently the superintendent he approved those recommendations to the board.

The board approved five transfers, one of those transfers include Cheryl Smith who will be moving from the Wicksburg High School principal to the secondary curriculum supervisor at the central office. The other transfer involves Greg Yance, currently the Rehobeth Elementary Principal now moving to elementary curriculum supervisor. Those transfers will be effective starting January 4th, 2021.

White hopes once he officially has the title to add new technology and focus on the new virtual program the schools have installed.

“Well it feels good to know I’ve been able to put a little team together and well be able to hit the ground running and move forward, start planning some of the things such as the virtual as well as our accreditation this coming up at the end of January,” Brandy White, Houston County Schools superintendent-elect said.

Brandy White will be sworn in as the Houston County Schools superintendent on January 4th.
