COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina Education Superintendent Mick Zais has been released from the hospital after treatment for flu-like symptoms.
Education Department spokesman Jay Ragley told The State newspaper Zais was released late last week.
Zais was admitted to the hospital a week ago.
Ragley says Zais had been battling flu-like symptoms for a couple of weeks and had a 102-degree fever for several days before he was admitted for observation.
The 64-year-old Republican became state education superintendent in January after being successful in his first run for political office. Zais retired from the Army in 2000 as a brigadier general and had spent the last decade as president of Newberry College.
