This is not true. He was one of many. The top two turned Habersham BOE down.

CLARKESVILLE - Donald E. Andrews of Asheboro, N.C., has been named the finalist for Habersham County school superintendent.
The move came as a result of a 4-1 vote during a called Habersham County Board of Education meeting at 4 p.m. Friday in Clarkesville.
Board member Pat Taylor cast the lone dissenting vote, but provided no explanation for her opposition to the selection.
“The finalist for superintendent is Donald Andrews,” BOE Chairman Trent DeMore said.“We took a number of skills and traits and accomplishments that Mr. Andrews brought to the table and it caused the Habersham County Board of Education to select Mr. Andrews as our next superintendent.”
“Obviously, we named him a finalist today,” DeMore said.“By law we’ve got to wait 14 days to have the actual vote to name him superintendent, but he is our sole finalist.”
“He is well matched to the characteristics and qualifications rated most important by our school system employees and our community members,” DeMore said.“The board found strong evidence that Mr. Andrews met all the highest-rated characteristics and qualifications, and we feel comfortable with the decision.”
Andrews is a graduate of the University of North Carolina, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in social studies and physical education in 1975. He holds both master’s and specialist degrees in educational leadership from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, S.C.
Andrews grew up in Durham, N.C., and is married to Sharon W. Andrews, who works as an assistant principal at Trindale and Trinity Elementary Schools. They have two children, 16-year-old Paul and 12-year-old Hannah; and one deceased daughter, Sarah.
Andrews’ resume’ shows he current serves as superintendent of Randolph County Schools in Asheboro, N.C., a system with a student enrollment of more than 18,600 students and more than 2,500 employees. The system includes 17 elementary, one sixth grade center, six middle, six high and one early college high school.
From 2000 to 2005, Andrews served as superintendent of Hartnett County Schools in Lillington, N.C. That system had more than 16,000 students and more than 2,000 employees. The system includes 17 elementary, five middle and four high schools, as well as one alternative center.
From 1998 to 2000, he served as superintendent of Camden County Schools in Camden, N.C. That system had more than 1,800 students and more than 200 employees. Schools include one elementary, one middle and one high school.
From 1996 to 1998, Andrews was superintendent of Graham County Schools in Robbinsville, N.C., a system with a student body of about 1,200 and a staff of more than 150. The system includes one elementary, one middle and one high school, and one early childhood center.

Do you live in Habersham. If so, you don't know who I know. So there, I wouldn't say something I don't know for a fact. Don't ask who I know, don't ask who was a finalist. I can't tell that.

Forum goers question absence of Andrews

The absence of Randolph County Schools Superintendent Donald Andrews did not go unchecked at the April 7 forum called by the Trinity High School Athletic Boosters.
At the February meeting of the Board of Education, Booster Club members had asked for the forum as a venue to express concerns about Trinity’s falling enrollment and its impact on academics and athletics.
“I am disappointed Don Andrews is not here tonight,” apologized Board of Education member Gary Cook.“You invited him, I also invited him ... I don’t make any excuses for him, I wish he was here tonight.”
John Cable, chairman of the Archdale-Trinity Supplemental Tax Council, was more forthright.
“I fought to make sure Wheatmore wasn’t being exclusive, that we could get paint, air conditioning for Trinity,” Cable said.“But (the Tax Council) can’t vote, we’re not the school board. We take your concerns to them and put pressure on them, but we don’t work their budget.
“We’ve had a good working relationship with the school board. We have absolutely no working relationship with the superintendent.”
The forum also addressed promises made when Trinity and Wheatmore high school students split into two campuses.
Cable added that Andrews promised Trinity and Wheatmore would have equal advanced placement classes, but that didn’t happen.
“There should be more AP courses in the Archdale-Trinity district than anywhere else in the county,” he told the audience.“We fought this battle and we won. I sat in a meeting with the superintendent who said,‘OK,(Wheatmore) has been built, if they’ve only got six or eight kids here [at Trinity], we’ll make sure the class makes up.’ I was assured of that.
“Well, guess what? He lied to me.”
This drew grumbling from the audience.
However, it was Gary Mason, elected to the Board of Education last November, who drew the biggest response.
“My wife reminded me, not that she needed to, that I was not elected to protect or represent Don 
Andrews ...”
At this, there was resounding applause from the audience of faculty and parents.
“I was elected to represent the people of Randolph County,” he finished.
On Monday, Andrews told the NEWS that he saw no need to attend the forum because he had addressed the issues in a letter after the February meeting. The NEWS could not obtain a copy by press time.

Now he is here in Crossville, TN. Can you please be more specific on the wrong doings of this man? He is already here making bad decisions. We need to be able to communicate everything to our board of education.
