Thomasville-- Dr. Tommy Pharis was selected for the position last week, but he has been serving as the interim superintendent since June 1st.

Not only has Pharis worked as a teacher and principal in Grady County... he graduated from Cairo High School in 1969.    "Its a privilege, I consider it a privilege and I'm humbled by the opportunity. Because I'm from Cairo, I think to me, it takes on greater significance because I am tied to the community. I have a personal stake in our school system and our children," says Pharis.

He will replace former superintendent Steve Wooten who resigned May 31.
