Cain, a Decatur police officer, has served on the board for two years. He was vice chairman in 2004-05.
"I realize this will be a challenge for me," Cain stated after the meeting. "But I am looking forward to working with Superintendent Dr. Mike Reed and his staff, faculties, students, parents and citizens to help make our schools the best they can be."
Three Hartselle Junior High students were presented plaques as first place state award winners in different competitions.
