Hinds County Schools hire new superintendent

RAYMOND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Hinds County school board has selected Delesicia Martin as the district's new superintendent. She replaces Dr. Stephen Handley, who is retiring.

Dr. Handley has agreed to relinquish his position as superintendent and move into a consulting/transition role until his retirement, so Dr. Martin can take over the district immediately.

By making this change now, the transition to new leadership will be expedited and help prepare the District for the 2014-15 school year.
