Our thoughts...BOE turnover
Placeholder Image
There were 51 and now there are three - candidates for Newton County Schools superintendent that is.

All three look very promising; you can see their résumés at

We commend the Board of Education search committee for their efforts so far.

The current economic climate necessitates hiring a highly qualified and skilled candidate for this position.

Speaking of the BOE, we are losing three good members of the board: Johnny Smith, Cathy Dobbs and C.C. Bates. We will miss these dedicated board members. We need intelligent and committed people to run for those soon-to-be-vacated positions.

We are going to watch the candidates for this position very closely because it is imperative that we have the cream of the crop of leadership in these important county positions.

If you would like to run for a spot on the BOE, please feel free to stop by and talk with us.
