The Marietta Board of Education has named an interim superintendent for the upcoming school year.
Monday night, board members approved Dr. Harry Fleming for the post.
Dr. Fleming previously held the position of Superintendent for Belpre City Schools, but retired last year.
Board President, Greg Gault, believes Fleming will be able to hit the ground running since he previously served as a Principal in the Marietta School District.
Gault adds that Fleming is already familiar with staff and administrators in the district.
Dr. Fleming will start August 1 and his contract will end in July of 2012.
Gault says the search to permanently fill the position will begin sometime in January.
