The Elbert County Board of Commissioners are back into the swing of things after yesterday evening’s regular meeting.
Before fully getting underway, the commission was introduced to Interim School Superintendent Chuck Bell, who took the place of former Superintendent Rick Higginbotham on July 1st.
Bell told the board that he understands the weight of keeping the community involved with what is going on.
“ With that in mind, I do want you to know that I understand the crucial role that the person in the position plays regards to the community involvement, in regards to being part of making this community all that it can be, and so you have my commitment in that regard and I look forward to working with each and every one of you” Says Bell.
The Elbert County Board of Education, during a called meeting in late June, hired Bell as the interim superintendent for a period of one year.
