Brunswick Co. School Board names interim superintendent
BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — In a closed session Thursday afternoon, members of the Brunswick County School Board named an interim superintendent. That person will take over after the contract of Dr. Edward Pruden was terminated last week.
The Board announced Les Tubb as the interim superintendent. Tubb also served as interim superintendent prior to Pruden’s hire in July of 2010. Tubb has also served as the director of career & technical education for Brunswick County Schools.
Pruden’s last day is November 30th. The decision to terminate the contract passed 3-2. The buyout of Pruden’s contract will cost an amount less than $130,000, according to the Board. Pruden announced earlier this year that he would leave the district when his contract expires at the end of June 2015.
