VARDAMAN, Miss. (WCBI) — Vardaman now has one person at the top of its recreation programs.

And Caleb Tedder will have some new programs to add to his list of responsibilities.

Tedder had shared the sportsplex duties with Greg Pepper, but Pepper is stepping aside.

Aldermen decided to just combine the positions and put Tedder in charge.

Aldermen also have agreed to take over youth football leagues that had been operated by Jay Vanlandingham. He’s getting out of the business and selling his equipment to the city.

Vardaman leaders say the programs are too valuable to let them end.
