TYLER, TX (KLTV) -The Tyler Independent School District Board of Trustees intends to name Gary Wayne Mooring Interim Superintendent upon the expected resignation of current Superintendent, Dr. Randy Reid, who was recently named the lone finalist for Keller ISD Superintendent of Schools in Keller, Texas.
