The Lamar County School Board’s roster will be missing a District D representative after Terry Ingram resigned from the position at the group’s September meeting Monday night.
Board Attorney Rick Norton said Ingram had relinquished the District D spot after he moved to a new home outside of the district.
“He no longer serves at the representative of the School Board district he was elected to,” he said. “So, he has tendered his resignation.”
District D includes MS Hwy. 589 as the western boundary north from Purvis and Old Hwy. 11 as the eastern boundary.
Board President Deborah Pierce of District A said the Board will start interviewing candidates for the District D position after advertisements are published in a newspaper for two weeks.
Ingram was the board’s vice president, and School Board members voted to make Jeremy Chance of District C the vice president. District B Board member Jim Braswell was chosen as secretary.
Buddy Morris represents District E in the Lamar County School District.
