JACKSON — Mississippi Gov. Bryant says he will act quickly to choose a new member for the state College Board.
Glenn McCullough of Tupelo was confirmed to the 12-person board during the recent legislative session, but Bryant announced Thursday that McCullough will become director of the state’s job creation agency, the Mississippi Development Authority.
McCullough had been scheduled to start a nine-year term on the College Board on May 9, but says he will give up that position before it starts. He says he wants to focus on the MDA job that he begins in June.
Bryant says he would interview potential College Board nominees Thursday and could name his choice Friday.
The nominee will serve until the Legislature is back in session. Board members must be confirmed by the state Senate.
