What appeared to be a formality has become a shocking disappointment.
The Brunswick County Board of Education's approved personnel list released late Tuesday night did not include the recommendation to hire John Floyd as the West Brunswick High School athletic director.
Floyd, who had signed a contract for the position, had already assumed responsibilities at West and was featured in a Beacon article about the position on Wednesday, Aug. 14.
Terry Chestnutt, assistant superintendent of human resources for Brunswick County Schools, said late Wednesday Floyds contract was not approved by the board and he was not an employee of Brunswick County Schools.
When asked for a reaction late Wednesday afternoon, Floyd said, "I ain't got one."< br/>He said he signed a contract last week and was under the assumption he had been hired for the job.
Floyd is a former West Brunswick athletic director. Marcia Heady, who resigned earlier this summer, previously filled the position. She now is an assistant principal at Shallotte Middle School.
Floyd, who was not at the board meeting Tuesday night, said he was uncertain about his options.
"I don't know," he said. "I don't know anything right now. I don't know what's going on. I don't have a clue. I just found out about it a couple of hours ago."
Floyd said he has received "lots" of support but was reluctant to elaborate.
He had left Elite Homes to take this job, but he is uncertain now about his future.
"I don't have a clue," he said.
