Cairo--A long-time south Georgia high school principal is leaving the area.   Tim Helms resigned as principal at Cairo High. He's worked in the Grady County school system for 27 years.

He'll be deputy superintendent in Houston County. With around 30 schools, it's a much larger school system.

CHS Senior Jacob Odum, said "It didn't really surprise me too much. He needs to do what's best for him and his career. And his career, if what he wants to do is be a superintendent, then that's what he needs to do."

The school system is accepting applications for the next two weeks and will make a recommendation to the board of education in May.  Helms will finish out the school year.
