BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - The superintendent for Lee County, Stephen Nowlin, has been named to serve as the new superintendent in Jefferson County.
The school board voted 4-1 on Thursday to make Nowlin the superintendent. Superintendent Phil Hammonds is retiring when his contract expires in February.
Board member Jacqueline Smith, who did not vote of Nowlin, believes Nowlin will not move Jefferson County Schools forward. Nowlin was 1 of 3 finalists for the job, and Smith favored a finalist from Georgia.
Board president Jennifer Parsons anticipates Nowlin starting the job on Jan. 1. Parsons says the next step is to negotiate the contract with Nowlin, who has 26 years of experience in education.
Nowlin has also served as superintendent of Lee County since 2008, serving as an interim superintendent there before his full-time appointment.
