WESTMORLAND — After devoting nearly her entire career to the school district here, Anne Mallory has resigned as superintendent to take a position with the county Office of Education.
Mallory ended her seven-year term as superintendent of the Westmorland Union Elementary School District today.
On Monday she will start in a newly created position — special assistant to county Office of Education Superintendent John Anderson.
The Westmorland school board has named Linda Morse, principal in the school district, as interim superintendent.
Morse said this morning the board would like to have a new superintendent in place by July. Morse added she does not plan to seek the permanent position.
Mallory said this morning she will miss the Westmorland district but said the county position was an interesting opportunity.
"I am looking forward to it," she said. "There will be a lot of challenges."
Mallory, a Westmorland native, has been an educator since 1978.
