Last updated on Wednesday, August 15, 2012

(MITCHELL) - Just in time for the start of school, Mitchell filled a few open jobs in classrooms.

Mike Lewis of the Times-Mail reports that the school board Monday night approved hiring Cody Conner as the new English/language arts and psychology teacher at Mitchell High School. He will replace Austin Malone, who is the new principal at Shoals Elementary School.

The board had given Assistant Superintendent Phil Storm the authority to hire people in advance of school but before Monday's meeting, so those people could be in place when students came to class. Conner's hiring was approved retroactively.
