Itawamba County, MS (WCBI)–An Itawamba County School Board member has resigned. Tammy Cooley, who has been representing the first district since 2011 announced her resignation last week during the board’s regular meeting. Cooley is moving out of the county, which would make her ineligible to serve on the board.
Cooley was elected in 2010, and replaced Eddie Hood. The school board has sixty days to appoint a new member to fill out her term. A special election will be held in November 2014.
