Covering Macon County: Superintendent Terminated

The search is on for a new school superintendent in Macon County.

Monday night, school board members voted to terminate the contract of Superintendent Willie Thomas. The board voted 3 - 1. One board member, Katy Campbell was not at the meeting. She tells WSFA 12 News, the vote was not on the agenda and she is very surprised that Thomas was dismissed.

Mrs. Campbell says Thomas would have retired when his contract ended, which was July of next year. Thomas's last day is Thursday. WSFA 12 News was unable to get in contact with him.

Dr. Joyce Lewis of Bullock County will take over as interim superintendent.
