The new Vicksburg-Warren School District superintendent has signed a two-year agreement. School Board president Zelmarine Murphy tells the Vicksburg Post Elizabeth Duran Swinford will be paid $125,000 a year.

Swinford is currently assistant superintendent for human resources at the East Baton Rouge Parish school district in Louisiana.

Swinford is the first woman to lead the district since it was founded in 1987 from the consolidation of city and county schools.

Swinford replaces James Price, who retired June 30 after holding the position since 2003.

The district has 15 schools with about 9,000 students. Swinford will oversee a budget of about $80 million.
