Trigg County’s Board of Education will interview three candidates this week for the school superintendent position soon to be vacated when Tim McGinnis retires.

Darrell G. Daigle, the director of secondary education for Henderson County Schools in Henderson since July 1, 2008, was interviewed Tuesday.

Travis Hamby, the assistant superintendent for personnel and operations for Trigg County Schools since July 1, 2007, will be interviewed Wednesday. Jennifer Miller, the district instructional coordinator for Mercer County Public Schools in Harrodsburg since July 1, 2007, will be interviewed Thursday.

In a letter to the screening committee, Daigle said he has been an educator in Henderson County for 22 years, where he has been a teacher, coach, dean of students and assistant principal in addition to his current position.

Hamby, in his letter, said his 10-year experience as a school administrator makes him a good fit. Before working at Trigg County, he was an administrator at Todd County for seven years, three of those as the assistant principal of South Todd Elementary School.

Miller, in her letter, said she has 14 years of classroom experience and six years of school administrative experience, wherein she has been the assistant principal and principal of King Middle School and the district instructional coordinator for Mercer County Schools.

The public has been invited to meet each candidate each day at 4 p.m. at the Trigg County High School Library. Each candidate has or will meet the public at the library before their dinner and interview with the school board at the Lake Barkley State Resort Park.

In other business at their meeting last Tuesday night, the board approved Friday, May 28, the last Friday in May, as the night that graduation will be held.

During a special called meeting, McGinnis said that graduation will be held at 7 p.m. May 28 in the Trigg County High School Gymnasium, with the last day for students on Thursday, May 27.

In other business, the board unanimously approved the surplus of three school buses that are no longer needed in the fleet rotation. McGinnis said the buses will be sold through the Kentucky Interlocal School Transportation Association (KISTA) surplus bus auction later this spring.

The board also amended a previous board action authorizing McGinnis to advertise for insurance bids for the 2011 fiscal year with a one-year option to a two-year renewal option.

After that, the school board and the superintendent search/screening committee went into a closed session to continue discussions regarding the 10 candidates for the role of superintendent. No action was taken after the closed session.
