COAHOMA — Dr. Randy Brown, superintendent of Coahoma Independent School District the past three years, is resigning to accept a similar position in Snyder.
Snyder ISD trustees unanimously named Brown the “lone finalist” for their superintendent post during their Monday meeting. The school district must wait a state-mandated 21 days before making the hiring official. Brown replaces Mark Eads, who resigned in May to become superintendent at San Marcos ISD.
Brown's first official day on the job at Snyder will be Aug. 22.
