ELKINS -

The Randolph County Board of Education held a special meeting Wednesday night, and voted unanimously to appoint Terry George interim superintendent of Randolph County Schools.

George was one of five applicants interviewed.

George will fill the vacancy left by Dr. James Phares starting January 1 through June 30. George will also continue his duties as assistant superintendent of operations.

The board will do a search for the next superintendent by advertising the position statewide with the help from the West Virginia State School Board Association.

George said he's looking forward to the new role, and wants to continue the goals set by the board in August.

The West Virginia Board of Education voted unanimously to make Phares the state superintendent of schools.

A national search to find a long-term state superintendent is also underway.

Phares will be swore in as state superintendent in Charleston on Jan. 2.
