CARTHAGE, MO – Just days before the new school year begins, the Carthage School District loses its school board president.
Lee Elliff Pound has submitted a letter of resignation, citing only personal reasons.
School board members plan to accept the resignation at a meeting Monday.
They expect to choose a new president at that time and begin the search for a new member to fill the vacant seat.
Pound was re-elected to the school board last spring, with a term running through 2024.
