New Jones County Health Director Fired

A newly hired county health director is no longer on the job.

Jones County Manager Franky Howard says Kimberly Shill was let go because she did not meet the qualifications for the job as required by the state.

Shill had worked for the county for less than a month.

Howard says Onslow County Health Director Angela Lee has been named interim director. Lee will serve both counties for the time being.
