The Calhoun County school district has a new leader.
Today, Governor Ron DeSantis announced the appointment of Darryl Taylor as the county’s new Superintendent.
Taylor is appointed to the position vacated by Ralph Yoder.
Taylor has worked in the public school system for over 25 years as a teacher and guidance counselor. Currently, he is the principal at Carr Elementary and Middle School in Clarksville, as well as the Interim Assistant Superintendent in Calhoun.
Taylor’s appointment earned the praise of Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran, who called Taylor an “excellent leader,” and Sen. Bill Montford, who hailed Taylor’s appointment as an excellent choice.
Yoder told the school district in April that he would be stepping down after serving as superintendent for nearly six and a half years. Yoder accepted the position of executive director of the Florida Transportation Commission.
