Gov. William Winter of Mississippi has been appointed chairman of a new task force of the Southern Regional Education Board that will promote and monitor education-improvement efforts in the 14 Southern states that participate in the regional consortium.

Governor Winter was chairman of the board of the sreb in 1982-83; Gov. Lamar Hunt of Tennessee now holds that post.

A principal purpose of the task force, an sreb spokesman said last week, will be to help states implement the 20-point school-reform strategy--"Meeting the Need for Quality: Action in the South"--proposed by the organization last spring. (See Education Week, June 15, 1983.)
