“As my retirement date approaches, I want to thank the search committee and our Human Resources Department for working under a very tight timeline to do a national search, conduct many interviews and produce three finalists,” said outgoing Superintendent/President Kathleen Rose. “The forums are a fantastic opportunity for our community to participate in this especially important process of selecting your next superintendent/president.”
