The Covington News - - Front Page - AM­BER PITTMAN Staff Re­porter

Sa­man­tha Fuhrey was cho­sen Tues­day night to take over the po­si­tion of Deputy Su­per­in­ten­dent for Cur­ricu­lum and In­struc­tion, which is be­ing va­cated by Ken Proc­tor in April.

The board of ed­u­ca­tion ap­proved the move, but board Chair­man Eddie John­son and Dis­trict 4 mem­ber Al­mond Turner were con­cerned that the po­si­tion was not ad­ver­tised.

Su­per­in­ten­dent Gary Mathews ex­plained that pro­mo­tions such as this (Fuhrey cur­rently works along­side Proc­tor and is fa­mil­iar with the po­si­tion and re­quire­ments) are not against the school sys­tem’s pol­icy and are, in fact, quite com­mon­place.

The board also voted to pro­mote two as­sis­tant prin­ci­pals to prin­ci­pals in the com­ing school year.

When long­time prin­ci­pal G.W. Davis re­tires from Mans­field El­e­men­tary this year, cur­rent AP Lynne Dinardo has been named to step into the po­si­tion. Sim­i­larly, at East­side High School, cur­rent prin­ci­pal Den­nis Rod­den­berry has an­nounced his plan to re­tire at the end of this year and AP Jef­frey Cher will be the suc­ces­sor.
