Gary Marchal named interim superintendent of AuGres-Sims schools
AuGRES – Gary Marchal has been named as the new interim superintendent of AuGres-Sims School District.
Marchal will replace former superintendent Anne Doriean, who announced her resignation as superintendent Nov. 1.
Marchal is a former superintendent at AuGres-Sims. Board of Education President Douglas Furtah said the board got in touch with Marchal early on once Doriean announced her intention to retire.
“We gave him a call, but he was out of town,” said Furtah. “So we left him a message, and we met once he returned. He said he would accept the contract.”
Marchal officially started Thursday, Nov. 10, after a special board meeting was held to confirm him. Furtah said it had been scheduled originally to select an interim superintendent.
Doriean turned in an official resignation letter at the same meeting. She cited personal reasons for leaving the position, and said in a statement that she was thankful for the opportunity to work with the school district.
