The school board met in a special meeting on Monday morning and agreed to accept applications for the trustee position.
The school board will vote to accept his resignation at the regularly scheduled meeting on August 11th. Applications will be accepted for a ten day period following that meeting.
School Board President Paul Drake said, “He was a tremendous board member, his insight is going to be missed, what else do you say, he will be greatly missed.”
On July 28th, the NL ISD Board of Trustees also voted to hire new superintendent John McCullough.
During Monday night’s board meeting, the North Lamar ISD board of trustees voted unanimously to hire John McCullough as the new superintendent.
John McCullough was the superintendent at Sulphur Bluff ISD for the past two years and will be replacing longtime NLISD Superintendent James Dawson.
Yesterday, July 8th, the NL ISD School Board approved John McCullough, current superintendent of Sulphur Bluff ISD, as the lone finalist to become North Lamar’s new superintendent.
Mr. McCullough has been at Sulphur Bluff ISD for two years and would be replacing James Dawson, who served as NL Superintendent for 26 years. Currently, Assistant Superintendent Shelly McDowell is acting as interim superintendent.
Paul Jones, Paris ISD superintendent stated, “I have known John McCullough both personally and professionally for many years. He is both an experienced superintendent and a quality person. We were superintendents of neighboring school districts in Hopkins county and worked cooperatively sharing many services which benefited students of both school districts. We not only co-oped special services between our pervious districts–we were one of the few schools districts in the state of Texas that shared a business office. I look forward to his move to Lamar county.”
The North Lamar ISD School Board will have a vote to hire him in 21 days.
