H.I.S.D. Hires New Superintendent

The Huntington school district has a new superintendent.

Dr. Eric Wright won't take over until January 1st. He'll replace Superintendent Shirley Davis when Davis retires next June. Davis will continue to serve the district as a consultant.

H.I.S.D. board members made the decision at a meeting this week. They also approved the purchase of a $21,000 pickup for Wright.

He could have chosen either a district-owned vehicle or a car allowance.
