Troy BOE hires new tech coordinator

The Troy City Schools Board of Education hired a new technology coordinator on Tuesday.

The board approved the hire of Eugon Anderson, effective Feb. 13. Anderson replaces long-time technology coordinator Wayne Hubbard, who resigned to take a job with another school system.

“Mr. Anderson is coming to us from Bullock County, where he worked as technology coordinator and prior to that he worked with ITS, the company that installed our Smart boards,” Superintendent Dr. Lee Hicks told board members. “He understands what we’re looking for,” adding that the district seeks a coordinator who is adept at professional development with the faculty as well as understanding the nuts and bolts of hardware and software needs for the district.

In other personnel actions approved at Tuesday’s called meeting, the board accepted the resignation of Haley Boyd, Charles Henderson High School math teacher, effective March 1, and approved the retirement of Julie Thomas, CHHS guidance counselor, effective March 31.

Boyd is moving to Birmingham, where her husband recently began work.  Hicks said a retired teacher would be hired to fill that opening until the end of the school year. Thomas’ position will be advertised at the end of the school year.

The board also approved the hire of Daniel Wyche, Troy Elementary instructional aide. Hicks said the aide was required to assist with a special needs student. The salary will be paid from local funds.
