State Sen. Robert Nichols met yesterday with school superintendents from Cherokee, Anderson and Henderson counties to talk about education issues and the upcoming Legislative Session. I’m working on a story for next week, but two quick things I noticed: It looks like the meeting took place in Athens, and in the above photo distributed by the senator’s office, that’s Cross Roads ISD Superintendent Clay Tompkins (left) sitting next to Nichols.

The Athens ISD Board of Trustees will hold a special meeting 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, to discuss “the employment status of (the) superintendent and the position of superintendent.”

The move comes after the announcement last week that Superintendent Dr. Robert Steeber has tentatively accepted the position is the Deputy Executive Director of Administrative Services with the Region XI Educational Service Center.

Steeber has only been with the district for about a year. He replaced Dr. Fred Hayes.
