COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - Interim Columbus School District Superintendent Edna McGill says she will apply to be the district’s next permanent superintendent.

McGill has served as head of the district since June 2013 after superintendent Martha Liddell was fired. Liddell was found to have used district funds to pay for a private party and continued to do consulting work in violation of her contract.

McGill, who retired as an assistant superintendent from the county school district, previously said she was not interested in the job.

She now tells The Commercial Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1vLJBz3 ) she has been urged by family, friends and school patrons to apply.

The application process opened Tuesday. The application deadline is May 30. The board has previously said it hopes to have a new superintendent in place by July 1.
