IUKA – The Tishomingo County school board last week named Christie Holly the district’s new superintendent effective July 1, said spokesman Joel Robertson.
Holly, who for the past year has served as the school district’s director of curriculum and testing, will fill the position being vacated when Superintendent Benny McClung retires June 30.
Holly previously was principal of Iuka Middle School for three years and assistant principal there. She received National Board Certification in early adolescence/generalist in 2002.
Holly earned her bachelor’s degree from Mississippi State University in English education and her master’s degree in educational leadership.
She is the first woman to serve as Tishomingo County schools superintendent.
