Cairo school board hires interim supt.

Tuesday, July 3, 2007

CAIRO, Ill. -- The Cairo School District has a new superintendent, but only on an interim basis.

The school board hired Bill Rogers as interim superintendent at a special board meeting on Saturday, school officials said Tuesday.

Rogers began his new job on Monday, having just retired last week as superintendent of the Giant City, Ill., School District.

Rogers will serve as interim superintendent for the next four months while the school board continues to search for a permanent replacement for Gary Whitledge, who resigned at the end of June.
