Williamstown Independent Schools’ search for a new superintendent is officially on.
Twenty people have applied to replace Charles Ed Wilson, who after six years with the district announced in November his plans to retire two years before his contract was scheduled to end.
His resignation will become effective July 1.
“I find the number of applicants to be outstanding,” said Mike Oder, a superintendent search consultant for the Kentucky School Boards Association (KSBA).
The district is paying KSBA $8,500 to assist with the search.
