Turnage to Again Lead Philadelphia Schools

Philadelphia, Miss. A former Philadelphia superintendent has been named to run the school district again on an interim basis.

Robert Turnage, who served as superintendent from 1995 until 2002, has been hired on a part-time basis to serve for the rest of the 2013-2014 school year.

Previous superintendent, Dr. Terry Larabee, resigned from the position over personal issues last week.

Larabee had been on administrative leave for almost two months since the police department was called to his home. He was not arrested.
