Edgecombe County is looking for a new school superintendent again.
Dr. Wayne Talley announced this morning during a staff meeting that he is leaving the school system after less than a year on the job. He cited health concerns as the reason for his departure.
Talley was hired last summer. He previously served as assistant superintendent at Avery County Schools.
A school spokeswoman says Talley listed September 30th as his last day, but that could change after the school board meets on Wednesday night.
