TURNER CO. - It was business as usual at Turner County schools Tuesday, though what happened at the previous night's school board meeting was anything but ordinary.
"Come December 31st Jimmy Alberson's contract expires, we won't have a Superintendent," School Board Chairman Danny Godwin said.
Jimmy Alberson out after 12 years as Superintendent, Monday night two board members voiced concerns about Alberson's criminal record. He pled guilty to disorderly conduct earlier this month for pointing a gun at a man's head.
Godwin was one of the two who stood behind Alberson, "I've supported him through whole episode, try to look at somebody's performance, rather than other things and his performance has been great."
Turner Elementary, consolidated from several schools to one during Alberson's term, proudly displaying an award it received from the Governor last month.
But for many parents the fact Alberson admits he confronted a D.O.T employee he thought robbed his friend, meant he needed to go.
"He don't need to be out there with our children. When they charged him should've been out of there," Sabrina Hampton said.
Alberson was on the job today, cleaning out his office. He didn't want to talk to us about not getting another contract offer. He's told supporters he'll stay on through students last day Thursday. The Board of education is now accepting applications for his replacement.
One of the board members who voted to get rid of Alberson, told us he had no comment, the other could not be reached. Turner County's 5th school board member died earlier this year.
