TUPELO — Billy Crews, the chief executive officer of Journal Inc., publisher of the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal, has been named chief operating officer of the Tupelo Public School District.

The newspaper reports that Crews will begin his new job on Jan. 1.

Crews will manage the non-instructional departments in the school district, such as human resources, technology, communications, district operations and finance.

The 54-year-old Crews will be paid $122,000 a year.

Tupelo Superintendent Randy Shaver says by having to spend less time with operations, he will have more time to lead professional development for teachers.
