COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Muscogee County Schools Superintendent David Lewis stepped into his new position a month ago as the top educator for the district.
Now he's ready to fill his first cabinet job that's been vacant for five years, vacated by retired Deputy Superintendent Robin Pennock.
"This is someone again who is complimentary to me and will help the district move forward with our vision," explained Lewis following Monday night's work session meeting where the recommendation was briefly discussed.
News Leader 9's Roslyn Giles was told Braaten has already left her position as the director of the Department of Academic Rigor in Secondary Education. Braaten started there in 2002 as a guidance counselor.
We're told Braaten will be paid approximately $10,000 to $15,000 less than the budgeted $122,500 yearly salary, according to Communication's Director Valerie Fuller.
