Posted: Updated:

The state board of education has named a new superintendent for Preston County.

Rick Hicks will replace Larry Parsons, who is retiring.

Parsons has been superintendent since 2009 when the Office of Education Performance Audits found several problems in the county.

Preston County has been under state intervention ever since.

Hicks has been in education administration for 25 years and has been a superintendent before.
