ABERDEEN, Miss. (WCBI)-A principal who was removed from an Amory school two years ago has been named principal at Aberdeen Elementary. Leigh Todd takes over July 1st after most recently serving as transformational leader with the school improvement grant in Okolona. She replaces Angie Irvin who is moving to the district’s central office. Todd was fired in March 2011 as principal at West Amory Elementary for punishing a student by making him walk around for hours with his tongue sticking out. Todd sued the district over her firing and they settled that lawsuit earlier this year.
