Superintendent search narrows

Members of the Hudson School Board personnel committee along with board members met this week to narrow the field of candidates for the position of superintendent of the Hudson School District.

Dr. Ron Bernth will retire from the position in June after 16 years with the district.

The committee reviewed 16 applications for the position and will ultimately choose the two finalists.

According to personnel director Bob Benoy, applicants primarily come from within the five-state area with one applicant from Kentucky.

The final two candidates will be invited to Hudson, one on March 29 and one on the 31 to tour the schools, meet with administrators and tour the community. There will also be an opportunity for the district staff and the public to meet each candidate from 4-5 p.m. in the Hudson High School Cafeteria on both days.

For more information, contact Benoy at (715) 386-4903.
