The George County School Board is inviting the public to meet and hear from the finalists in the school district superintendent search.
After months of preparing a list of job requirements, developing a position description, advertising for and interviewing candidates, the process is finally down to the final two.
Those two are Veronica Landry, retired superintendent from the Bay St. Louis-Waveland School District and Wade Whitney, currently the principal at George County High School.
The forum will be held Friday, June 14 at the George County campus of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College at 7 p.m. The forum is designed to let each candidate address the audience for up to 10 minutes and then answer questions.
Interested parties may submit their questions via email to Tommye Henderson, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Ms. Henderson is a consultant with the Mississippi School Board Association (MSBA).
MSBA has been assisting the George County School Board in the search process. The names of people submitting the questions will be kept confidential, School Board President Barkley Henderson said.
The school board will make its final selection within weeks of the forum, Henderson said.
