CENTREVILLE – It looks like the search for the next Centreville Public Schools Superintendent is now down to two candidates.
School officials say they were notified Wednesday that Tim Donahue has withdrawn as one of the three finalists for the job. Officials say Donahue did not give a reason why he was taking his name out of consideration.
Donahue, Stephanie Lemmer and Corey Helgesen were selected after first round interviews were held last Saturday by the Centreville Board of Education with five candidates. Those five had been chosen out of 26 individuals who had applied for the job.
Lemmer and Helgesen will still be interviewed this Saturday in the Centreville High School Library. Lemmer's interview will start at 9 AM and Helgesen at 10 AM. The interviews will be open to the public.
Lemmer currently serves as the Director of Head Start at Kalamazoo RESA. Helgesen is the Superintendent at Litchfield Community Schools.
Rob Kuhlman, the current Centreville Superintendent, will be retiring in June after serving the district for seven years. The Board of Education hopes to hire a new Superintendent this spring and then have them start officially July 1.
The posted salary for the Centreville Superintendent's job is between $100,000 and $110,000 a year.
