One of the three candidates will replace current Trigg County School Superintendent Tim McGinnis, who will be retiring on June 30 this year. McGinnis announced his retirement last December.
In a note he passed around at that meeting, he said the time has come for change, both for the school district and for him, as he has been a superintendent for 10 years and has been in the education profession for 33 years.
A new superintendent will be named by April 30, said Trigg County School Board Chairman Mike Davis.
Darrell G. Daigle, the director of secondary education for Henderson County Schools in Henderson, since July 1, 2008, was interviewed last Tuesday.
Travis Hamby, the assistant superintendent for personnel and operations for Trigg County Schools since July 1, 2007, was interviewed last Wednesday.
Jennifer Miller, the district instructional coordinator for Mercer County Public Schools in Harrodsburg since July 1, 2007, was 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 was invited to meet each candidate at the Trigg County High School Library. Each candidate met with the public at the library before their dinner and interview with the school board at the Lake Barkley State Resort Park.
