Finalists Announced in Bowling Green Schools Superintendent Search
Four finalists have been named in the search for a new superintendent for the Bowling Green school system.
Allen Barber is the only finalist from out of state. He’s currently Director of Human Resources and Secondary Education for a school system in Eagle Point, Oregon.
Other finalists include Bowling Green High School Principal Gary Fields, Hart County Assistant Superintendent Wesley Waddle, and Mark Owens, Director of Personnel for Daviess County Public Schools.
"All four candidates have been successful in leadership positions, come highly recommended, and the screening committee using the criteria established by the board of education determined these four were the best fit for the position," says Phil Eason, a consultant with the Kentucky Association of School Administrators.
The four finalists were narrowed down from an applicant pool of 16.
The public is invited to meet the finalists at forum on April 28 at Bowling Green Junior High School at 6:00 p.m.
The Board of Education plans to hire the next superintendent by mid-May. Current Superintendent Joe Tinius is retiring June 30.
