ABBEVILLE, La. — The Vermilion Parish School Board on Tuesday night unanimously elected North Vermilion Principal Tommy Byler as the district's next superintendent.
Attorneys for Byler and VPSB will now meet to negotiate the terms of his contract; the contract will then go before the board to be ratified at the next regular meeting.
Speaking after the vote, Byler thanked the board and said he will be in the office soon to get kids in the district prepared to begin school.
Interim superintendent Brad Prudhomme, assistant superintendent Paul Hebert, and North Vermilion Principal Tommy Byler applied for the job and were interviewed Monday night.
Board members thanked Prudhomme for his seven and a half months served as the district's interim superintendent. Tuesday's meeting lasted less than 30 minutes.
The superintendent seat has been vacant since Jerome Puyau stepped down in January.
