The Itawamba County School Board has hired Michael Cates as Tremont Attendance Center principal to replace outgoing principal Eddie Moore.
Moore resigned to take a similar position at Pontotoc High School. Cates served as assistant principal at Tremont during the past school year.
Cates said he was thrilled to have the opportunity to lead Tremont’s students.
Currently, the school board has no plans to replace the assistant principal position left open by the change in leadership.
