The search for the new Dodge County school superintendent has now been narrowed to two candidates. The two applications that are being considered for the position are Thomas Michael Hilliard and Dr. Elvis B. Davis.
Hilliard is currently the Dodge County Middle School (DCMS) principal. Prior to DCMS, he was the North Dodge Elementary School principal.
Dr. Davis is currently the South Dodge Elementary School (SDES) principal and a U.S. Army veteran.
Approximately 16 applications were received by the board for the superintendent position. After reviewing the applications, the board interviewed three candidates Thursday, May 19th. Following the interviews, the board met for over two and a half hours and narrowed the decision to two applicants. Of the 16 applicants, 13 were received from outside of Dodge County.
Mark Driggers, chairman of the Dodge County Board of Education, said, “There were three great candidates with so much to offer, and it was tough to narrow it down.”
The next scheduled meetings for the Dodge County school board are Monday, June 6th and Tuesday, June 7th. The date was moved up from the regularly scheduled meeting date of Thursday, June 9th because of a school board conference in Savannah.
A final decision for Dodge County school superintendent position will be made on either Monday, June 6th or Tuesday, June 7th, according to chairman Driggers.
