TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - Josh Abramson, who has been executive director of the Tupelo Regional Airport for nearly four years, is leaving to take a similar position in College Station, Texas.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1w18vYb ) Abramson will lead the Easterwood Airport owned by Texas A&M; University.

The airport recently signed a management contract with College Station-based Astin Limited, which will oversee the day-to-day operations. The airport has two 5,150-foot runways and one 7,000-foot all-weather runway.

The 37-year-old Abramson became Tupelo Regional’s executive director on April 19, 2010, following a three-month search that drew 40 candidates from 15 states.

Abramson replaced Terry Anderson, who was fired in December after board members said they had lost confidence in him.

Abramson previously was executive director of the Winchester Airport Authority in Franklin County, Tennessee.
