Russell board meeting moved to Thursday

A called meeting of the Russell County School Board will be Thursday, not tonight as originally announced.

The selection of an interim superintendent to fill the position left open by the death of Russell County Schools Superintendent Vivian Carter is one of the agenda items for the meeting, scheduled for 6 p.m. EDT at Russell County High School in Seale.

Carter died Sunday after becoming ill during a speech at women's function at Chattahoochee Valley Community College Saturday night.

Services for Carter, 57, will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Words of Wisdom Christian Center, 420 38th St. in Columbus. Burial will be at Green Acres Cemetery.
