The Greene County Board of Education has scheduled interviews for the six finalists in the school system’s superintendent search which began February 18, 2019, when the board engaged the consultant services of the Alabama Association of School Boards. The interviews are scheduled to begin Monday, May 6, 2019 at 10:00 am. Two interviews will be held each day through Wednesday, May 8, with the board holding a call meeting on Thursday, May 9, to render its final decision.
The six finalists are: Dr. Donna Ray Hill of Snellville, GA – current employer BRP Associates, Stockbridge, GA; Dr. Corey L.

All finalists will be sent a listing of the interview questions in advance. Board members will have access to the full application package for each finalist. Although the interviews are public, only board members will participate in the interviews. The public may converse with the candidate in the Meet and Greet sessions that will follow each interview.
According to Dr. Linda Ingram, AASB consultant who led the Greene County School Board’s Superintendent Search, “Greene County attracted a cadre of very qualified individuals; 28 individuals started the process with 24 actually completing the application. The disbursement of applicants is as follows: 17 applicants from Alabama; two from North Carolina; one from Michigan; one from Mississippi; one from Georgia; one from Arkansas and one from Pennsylvania. There were 15 applicants with Doctorate Degrees among the applicants; six had Education Specialists Degrees and three had at least a Master’s Degrees.”
“All six finalists are a good fit for Greene County,” stated Dr. Ingram.
