The resignation of Mineral Springs School Superintendent Curtis Turner, Jr., was accepted by his school board, Monday night.
A search for his replacement has begun. Turner told the newspaper that the resignation was “purely family.” He said he would continue his consulting business. Turner was named superintendent the first time in 2013 when the State Department of Education took over the MS district. He served until 2017, but remained as a consultant during much of the time the new K-12 district facility was built. He was called back to the office in July 2019 when the board dismissed Supt. Thelma Forte.
The board also hired Robert Bullock as fulltime bus driver at the end of its 13-minute executive session. The only other order of business was approval of the financial report and approval of salary schedule changes.
Present for the board’s regular meeting for December were board members Ray Hawkins, Sheila Jackson, William Dixon, Dorothy Vaughn, Kay Erwin and board president Mike Erwin.
