CLOVIS -- Five candidates from New Mexico are interviewing to fill the top spot at Clovis Municipal Schools soon to be left vacant by departing Superintendent Terry Myers.
After meeting in executive session Thursday evening, the CMS Board of Education announced that they had received six applications for the superintendent of schools position, and will interview all but one of those applicants.
The applicant not chosen for interview was Tom Woody, superintendent of schools in Vernon, Texas, according to board President Terry Martin.
Among the internal candidates for the superintendent slot are Wayne Marshall, principal at Clovis High School, Jody Balch, deputy superintendent of operations, and Kerry Parker, executive director of human resources.
Randall Earwood, superintendent at Socorro Consolidated Schools, and Robert Emerson, assistant superintendent of educational services and data management at Farmington Municipal Schools, will also be interviewed.
Martin said the board hopes to begin interviewing those candidates next week, but said the process will not be rushed.
Were going to take our time, he said after the meeting.
Myers, who has held the Clovis superintendent position for four years, confirmed in March he was resigning to take the superintendent position at Crockett Independent School District north of Houston. He will step into that position beginning July 1.
