The Hopkins County School Board has authorized the advertising of a 'bond anticipation note' in the tune of $6.7 million to fund construction of the new Career and Technology Center. The board approved the use of BANs Monday at a regularly scheduled meeting.

Hopkins County Deputy Superintendent Linda Zellich will be the district's first female superintendent. The board of education selected Zellich yesterday to replace retiring superintendent James Lee Stevens. Zellich said she is ready to face the challenge of managing the 7,000 students and 1,000 employees.
