School board names Tubb interim superintendent

BOLIVIA — The Brunswick County Board of Education on Nov. 20 named Les Tubb to serve as Brunswick County Schools interim superintendent, but not before nearly 50 people angrily protested its decision to fire his predecessor.

The committee meeting was scheduled so that board members and district officials could hear from nine principals whose schools met growth standards for the 2013-14 academic year.

Instead, a protest and demonstration from sign-carrying parents and subsequent rebuttals from board members highlighted the five-hour showdown.
