School Board begins search for superintendent

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Hattiesburg School Board began the process of hiring a new superintendent tonight. Board members met in a special called meeting with Dr. Harold Fisher.  He's with the Mississippi School Board Association.

They've been hired to help the Board find a replacement for superintendent Dr. Annie Wimbish, who's leaving the district as of June 30th.

School Board president Reverend Marcus Cathey expects another special meeting soon to deal with possible furloughs in the school district.
