The “meet and greet” that had been scheduled with a second school superintendent candidate on Thursday has been canceled, the Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce said Tuesday.
The session had been scheduled for lunchtime Thursday with Dan Lawson. He is superintendent of Tullahoma City Schools in Tullahoma, Tenn.
The first of the three finalists, Roger Collins, toured Oak Ridge on Friday. The third finalist—Neyland Clark, superintendent of South Harrison Community Schools in Corydon, Ind.—could tour Oak Ridge later.
The chamber did not say why the “meet and greet” had been canceled.
With the help of an executive search firm, the Oak Ridge Board of Education is looking for a replacement for the current superintendent, Tom Bailey, who is retiring at the end of the year. Former Oak Ridge Schools Superintendent Bob Smallridge could serve as interim superintendent until a new superintendent is selected.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
