The Citizen-Times reported Saturday that the Asheville City Board of Education announced three finalists Friday in the search for the district’s next superintendent.
The three candidates are Ronald Hargrave of Statesville, N.C.; Jeff Cox of Sparta, N.C. and Pamela Baldwin of Laurinburg, N.C.
The three were chosen from more than 100 applicants in a national search managed by HYA and Associates. The board hopes to name the new superintendent by mid-April with a projected start date of July 1.
Each candidate will meet with the board to start and finish the day, visit each of the eight district schools and answer questions at a 6 p.m. community forum, which will be open to the public
