Dis­trict In­ter­views For As­sis­tant Prin­ci­pal Spot

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - FRONT PAGE - By Lynn Kut­ter

PRAIRIE GROVE — Prairie Grove School Dis­trict is in the process of fill­ing an as­sis­tant prin­ci­pal’s po­si­tion at the high school and re­ceived more than 60 ap­pli­ca­tions for the job, said Allen Williams, su­per­in­ten­dent of schools.

Williams said a com­mit­tee nar­rowed the ap­pli­ca­tions to 10 top can­di­dates and these are be­ing called in for in­ter­views. It’s pos­si­ble the com­mit­tee may de­cide to bring in two-three of the top 10 for a sec­ond round of in­ter­views, Williams said.

Mem­bers of the search com­mit­tee for the po­si­tion are Williams, Prin­ci­pal Ron Bond, As­sis­tant Su­per­in­ten­dent David Kel­logg, Joey Sorters, ath­letic di­rec­tor/ as­sis­tant high school prin­ci­pal, and four high school teach­ers.

Sorters will con­tinue in his role as as­sis­tant high school prin­ci­pal/ ath­letic di­rec­tor, Williams said. Sorters was named ath­letic di­rec­tor in June 2017 when for­mer AD Tommy Roy re­signed be­cause of health rea­sons. Williams said the ath­letic di­rec­tor pri­mar­ily deals with sports on the high school level so it made sense to keep that po­si­tion within the high school ad­min­is­tra­tion.

Most of the ap­pli­ca­tions for as­sis­tant prin­ci­pal came from Arkansas, Ok­la­homa and Mis­souri, Williams said. No one from within Prairie Grove School Dis­trict ap­plied for the po­si­tion. Williams said he hopes to have a rec­om­men­da­tion at the School Board’s April 16 meet­ing.

The 10 top ap­pli­cants for the po­si­tion are:

Jed Davis, Mar­ion

Floyd Fisher, Mans­field

Amanda Green, Omaha

Bryan Hale, Ben­tonville

Michael Hamp­ton, Fayet­teville

Stephanie Miles, North­west

Arkansas Ed­u­ca­tion

Ser­vice Co­op­er­a­tive

Tim Miller, Fayet­teville

Josh Nixon, Hill­dale, Okla.

Zach Vest, Rogers

El­iz­a­beth Watkins, Huntsville.
