The Starkville School District Board of Trustees announced the finalists for the superintendent position yesterday following the completion of the semifinalist interviews.
The school board voted unanimously for Lewis Holloway, superintendent of Bulloch County, Ga.; Michael McInnis, superintendent of Union City School District; and Michael VanWinkle, assistant superintendent of Jackson County School District as the three finalists.
The semifinalists, which also included SSD Assistant Superintendent Walter Gonsoulin and Andy Parker, principal of Bay St. Louis-Waveland High School, had their first interviews with the board this week. The board voted last night following the last interview.
The public will have the opportunity to meet the finalists for the first time at a public forum on Monday evening. During the forum, which will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the Starkville High School Theatre, the finalists will give a brief presentation and will be asked questions submitted by SSD stakeholders.
After the forum, the Starkville Foundation for Public Education, Parents for Public Schools and PTA will sponsor reception in the SHS library.
