Scott McMullen named director of Cape AEC
Central Middle School fifth grade math and science teacher Scott McMullen has been selected to direct the Cape Girardeau Alternative Education Center (AEC), Assistant Superintendent Pat Fanger announced. "Scott McMullen brings to the AEC successful experience in classroom instruction, leadership and extensive work with the juvenile system. We are confident that Mr. McMullen is a perfect fit for this building and will continue the excellent work that is already being done by Mrs. Carla Fee and her staff," Fanger said.
