This past Tuesday, the Polk County School District filled the empty district 6 seat by unanimously voting for former administrator Judy Wiggins.
Wiggins most recently held the position of interim principal of Northside Elementary after Wesley Cupp moved from Northside to Rockmart high in 2015.
Wiggins will hold the district six seat, which was recently vacated by Hal Floyd, until a special election can be held this fall.
The Polk School District in their Tuesday meeting choose the person who would fill the unexpired term of Hal Floyd, who resigned last week due to the state’s nepotism clause.
School board members unanimously chose retired administrator Judy Wiggins to fill the seat until a special election can be held this fall.
Wiggins recently retired from the district, but had most recently been interim principal at Northside Elementary School in Cedartown, after former superintendent William Hunter moved Wesley Cupp from Northside to Rockmart High School a couple of years ago.
A special election to fill the District 6 seat will be held this November, along with municipal elections. Wiggins will fill the position until the special election is held.
