Shaw and Adams

The Angelina County & Cities Health District board of health is seeking a new administrator after Sharon Shaw simultaneously announced her resignation and recommendation for her replacement Wednesday during a 7 a.m. board meeting.

Shaw’s resignation follows a board decision to terminate a contract with St. Luke’s Health Memorial-Lufkin that gave the hospital control over the administrator position. Her announcement was met with well wishes as well as consternation over the hiring process for her position.
