District 88 Sup’t Semi-Finalists 14 Mar 13

The New Ulm District 88 School Board approved a list of 6 superintendent semi-finalists on Wednesday. Current District 88 Superintendent Harold Remme is retiring at the end of June, and the search for his replacement has been underway for several months. A total of 15 applications for the position were received, and that list has now been narrowed down to six. Those semi-finalists include: GFW Superintendent Jeff Bertrang, Houston Superintendent Jean Broadwater, St. Peter Elementary Principal Karen Coblentz, Underwood Superintendent Jeremiah Olson, MACCRAY Superintendent Gregory Schmidt, and New Richland-Hartland-Ellendale-Geneva Superintendent Kevin Wellen. Interviews with these semi-finalists will now take place this coming Monday. The candidates will be interviewed by both the District 88 School Board and an 11-member community committee. Three finalists will then be named, and another round of interviews as well as a question-and-answer “Community Forum” will be held at the end of March before a final choice is made.
