The Meyersville school district is searching for a new superintendent.
Tina Herrington, 49, served as superintendent and principal for the past two years and is now moving to a new position with the Wharton school district as assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction.
"Meyersville is a wonderful community with great students and teachers," Herrington said. "I couldn't have asked for a better school board to work for during my first superintendency."
Michael Lanier, a retired superintendent, was appointed to serve as the district's interim leader while the Texas Association of School Boards conducts its search.
The application deadline is July 10, said Herrington.
"I'm looking forward to working at Wharton ISD," Herrington, a Hallettsville resident for the past 26 years, said. "It's a larger school district where I'll be able to work with a team of campus principals and administrators to impact instruction."
Herrington earned $43,775 in base pay as superintendent for the Meyersville school district with a calculated full pay of $87,550 for the 2013-14 school year, according to the Texas Education Agency's website. Her pay in the Wharton district was not available.
Herrington will leave the Meyersville district at the end of June.
The Wharton school district had 2,161 students enrolled in the 2013-14 school year; Meyersville had 116, according the Texas Education Agency's database of superintendent salary reports.
