Ousted Newport Superintendent Lands Principal's Job at Carlisle

JULY 30, 2004 - Posted at 7:08 a.m. CDT

 

CARLISLE, AR - The superintendent who resigned from Newport School District after he scuffled with a broadcaster has a new job as principal of Carlisle High School.

Floyd Marshal began his new job yesterday.

Marshall resigned as Newport superintendent in April.  The board accepted his resignation after agreeing to buy out his contract for about $233,000.

Marshall was suspended with pay April 5 after a scuffle with David Black, co-owner of a local cable access channel.  The altercation occured during a meeting between the superintendent and Newport media, in which school officials proposed barring media announcers from criticizing officials, coaches or players during athletic events.
