Highland schools hire new superintendent

HIGHLAND, AR (KAIT) - The Highland School District has hired a new interim superintendent.

The school board appointed Don Sharp to the position after an interview Tuesday night.

Sharp was hired at the standard daily rate of pay, according to the board. He was hired after the board members interviewed two candidates.

This comes a week after the school board bought the former superintendent, Tracy Webb, out of her contract.

They have also hired a firm, McPherson and Jacobson, to find candidates for the permanent superintendent position.
