Just got back from the Tupelo School Board meeting and a couple of items of note:
• The 2010-11 School Year will begin on August 4. The district will take holidays on Columbus Day and President's Day in addition to their regular set of holidays.
• Lee Tucker was voted school board president. Past president Mike Clayborne will be rotating off the board some time in October. Amy Heyer was elected Vice President and Eddie Prather was chosen Secretary. Those terms are for one year.
More on both stories in tomorrow's Daily Journal. I'll also have an update from tonight's Lee County School Board meeting later this evening. That meeting begins at 5 and will be held at Saltillo High School.
