Finalists to Lead School District Announced

The Fairfield County School Board announced the three finalists to take the helm as superintendent Tuesday night and said they would formally introduce the candidates to the community Saturday morning at a public forum, beginning at 9:30, at the Fairfield Central High School auditorium.

The finalist being introduced to the community Saturday are: Dr. Dennis Carpenter, of Ga.; J.R. Green, currently an assistant superintendent in Chesterfield County; and Fairfield County native Donald Kennedy, a consultant in Conn.

The School District did not comply with numerous requests for biographical information on the finalists, but research by The Voice revealed that Green serves as Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum for the Chesterfield County School District. Carpenter is the Deputy Superintendent for Operations with the Newton County School System, a district of 19,000 students 35 miles east of Atlanta in Covington, Ga. Carpenter has previously served Newton County as Associate Superintendent of Human Resources. No information was available for Kennedy.
