DESOTO COUNTY, MS (WMC) -

Cory Uselton has been elected the new DeSoto County Superintendent of Education.

Uselton will replace current superintendent Milton Kuykendall, set to retire in December. He will be sworn in in January.

On August 4, Mississippi residents headed to the polls to elect, among other positions, a new leader for the largest school district in the state.

However, none of the four candidates received more than 50 percent of the vote. Voters chose between the top two candidates, DeSoto Central High School principal Corey Uselton and district administrator Jim Ferguson in a runoff election Tuesday.
