After a lengthy search for a replacement, the Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board has chosen the person who will take over the top administrative post.
The board named Terry Lyons the new director of education at a meeting Tuesday night.
Lyons says he never envisioned holding such a prestigious position, but is excited to take over the reins.
Paul Picard announced his retirement early this year after a 41-year career in education.
Lyons is slated to assume his new responsibilities Oct. 31.
