Assistant Superintendent Byron Hurst will leave Tangipahoa Parish School System next month after a 10-year career in the parish.
Dr. Hurst has been begin his post as Deputy Assistant Superintendent of Student Well-being for the Louisiana Department of Education on Nov. 1.
Tangipahoa Parish School announced earlier this week that the school district would be losing a key member of Superintendent Melissa Stilley’s administration.
“While we are so excited that the State Department recognized the talent we see each and every day in Dr. Hurst, we are sad that he will be leaving our district in just a few weeks,” Stilley said.
Over the past 10 years, Dr. Hurst has served in many roles within the Tangipahoa Parish School System. He began in school administration and quickly rose to central office where he has served in supervisory positions. For the past three years, he has overseen the district’s transportation program, nursing, truancy and discipline issues as assistant superintendent.
The school system has begun advertising for a new assistant superintendent, said Stilley.
