Monroe to name school superintendent Thursday

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - The Monroe City School Board will meet Thursday to elect a new superintendent of schools.

That special meeting of the board has been scheduled for noon. Tomorrow's expected announcements comes after several months of screening applicants and a process where a selection committee was used to recommend the top five candidates.

Last week those candidates were narrowed from five to three when two candidates were removed from the running when they could not attend board interview sessions due to scheduling conflicts.

Monday, the public had the opportunity to meet the candidates at a forum. Tammye Turpin is hoping to land the job. She's a familiar face to the district currently serving as the Chief Academic Officer in Monroe. Turpin is up against another local worker, the principal of Neville High School, Brent Vidrine. Currently working west of the area, is Mary Nash-Robinson. She's the chief of staff for Caddo Parish Schools.
