The decision has been made.

The Huckabay ISD board of trustees interviewed the final candidate for the superintendent position Thursday and made its decision.

“We are very excited about this person and think they will do a great job,” Greg Stewart, president of the board, said Friday morning.

Stewart said the board will meet on Thursday, Aug. 4, to finalize the offer and then make the announcement public.

He said there is a 21-day waiting period until the next superintendent can begin.

Longtime superintendent Dr. Cheryl Floyd’s last day will be Aug. 31.
