Not a big deal wrote:
It really doesn't matter who the committee chooses, the board doesn't have to accept their recommendation. Mr. Wagner wasn't the one the hiring committee chose the last time, but he was still hired as the supt.
If procedure isn't or wasn't followed its a big deal!this one will be followed with the right authorities at best wishes.

Here are some names no one is talking about that are going to be contenders.

Hopson from Phelps. She almost got it last time and will be the dark horse that surprises people this time. Sleeper for sure

Andy Dotson formally of Phelps and current Harrison County superintendent will be another name no one is talking about that could sneak in and get it. RUMOR has it that he was in town not to long ago...

Matt Mercer will think he has it all the way up until he is told he is not it, he is being played politically right now. He's way to young the old geezers will never put him in.

Kilgore and Roger Johnson will try to get it but they obviously have no hope in getting it.

Reed is also a smoke screen. No chance

Whoever it is I hope them the best of luck because they will need it. this county is in a world of hurt

just wondering what happens to ( Kilgore and Johnson ) if they don't get back in the BOE after this? I know my opinion doesn't matter but for the good of our kids I hope they don't get to stay in the school system.

Andy Dotson is not leaving Harrison County. Roger Johnson is heading to Martin County as superintendent. Matt Mercer and Reed Adkins are too inexperienced. David Lester has the experience but may not want the headache. Who does the board hire?

no one will want the job after the real in depth audit that is heading to Pike County BOE. The real one, the big one that has been promised. I imagine the paper will have a lot to print about soon. Any person that has a secure job in another district had better keep it and most know what is coming and will not throw a hat in the ring for this damn job. The last super did not fold up his tent and walk away without a good fight or a reason. I would not wish that job on my worst enemy after the results of the audit comes out.

I heard this audit was focusing on SOME individual schools and their financial (or should I say, lack of finances) situations. It is nonsense that a large, athletically partial school would be broke! I hear that every sporting event at that school is PACKED! "Where's the money?"

Mrs.Wolf ?she would put teach back into teacher as in teaching!More than likely K.D.E. will make the final call in the end.

More than one entity is bringing suite against Topix on this thread alone. IP addresses will be revealed during the process and will be traced. I expect slander lawsuits are inevitable and some think they can hide behind fake names and slander innocent people. Keep talking.....

It's not slander or libel statements if true. I guess it's time for the citizens to bring suit against those who try to cut deals behind close doors.

It is called some citizens need to get off of their butt and get a job. Must be nice to have nothing better to do than to stay at home and write on here.

With what I know about David Lester I can't imagine him aligning himself with Adkins, mercer. Have a lot of respect for him but if he does this I Would lose a great deal. Would be nice to see a Supt. and support staff of people who have excelled and are moved to BOE for their merit rather than their politics. David could have the chance, if he gets it I hope he don't blow it with these two.

I think David Lester would be a great choice for Supt. He's a good person and would have the best interest of our students at heart. He doesn't have an ax to grind or promises to keep. As far as Reed, Freddie and Matt being in charge, why not? Most of us are just about sick of all the ones in charge now (who needed to retire YEARS AGO!!) It's time for some new ideas and leadership! I hope they clean house at the Central Office. I would be willing to bet that more than 75% of the Central Office employees can retire now, or within the next two to three years. It's not like we've been leading the state in test scores with this bunch in charge.
David is a ass. He is just like Ralph Kilgore. NO TACT when to comes to people. I will pray for a good supt. One the will care about the kids. Not his pockits.

Is it true that Bobby Ray might be the next superintendent!
Has he ever been a superintendent before any where else?

Bet he would do a great job from the word around town
