The assistant principal has taken over the top position at Alcorn Central High School.

That’s according to former principal Brandon Quinn who accepted the role of interim superintendent recently.

Quinn confirmed Matthew Young has stepped into the role of principal at ACHS. He will continue through June.

“Mr. Young, along with the entire staff at Central High School are very strong and will continue to move Alcorn Central forward throughout the year,” said Quinn.

Young has been assistant principal for one year. He previously held positions in the Tupelo city school district.

In other Alcorn School District news, the Board of Education voted on new officers for 2021.

A unanimous board vote gave Judd Chapman president duties for the new year.

Chapman has served as the president of the board since late fall when Ricky Fields resigned after moving outside his district.

Another unanimous vote gave the secretary and vp duties to longtime board member Mary Coleman.

Members voted to continue holding regular scheduled meetings on the second Monday of each month at 5:30 p.m.

The board also voted on the salary for the interim superintendent position.

Quinn will earn $55,000 with a contract ending date of June.
