The Longview ISD school board on Monday night officially rehired James Wilcox as interim superintendent effective Tuesday.
Trustees Sam Satterwhite, Chris Mack, Troy Simmons, John Preston and Jud Murray voted unanimously to bring Wilcox back. Board members Ted Beard and John Harrison did not attend the meeting.
"We appreciate the guidance you have given us through the past almost five years," Satterwhite said.
In his role as interim superintendent, Wilcox will aid the district in its search for a permanent chief.
Wilcox came to the district in 2007. He retired Dec. 31 and Deputy Superintendent Andrea Mayo has been serving in the role since Jan. 1.
