New Wayne County superintendent

Posted: Updated:

The Wayne County school system has a new leader after board members voted 3-1 in favor of offering assistant superintendent Lynn Hurt the job.

Hurt has worked in Wayne County since the 1980's will be the first woman to hold the position of Wayne County School Supintendent.

Hurt's first hurdle is to come together with board members to figure out how to create a revenue stream that can serve as a match toward money from the WV School building Authority.

She also has to re-establish a sense of trust between residents and the school board.
