8 apply for Morgan's director of secondary education position

By Bayne Hughes 340-2432

Morgan County Superintendent-elect Bob Balch doesn't take office until January, but he's already taking care of one pressing matter.

Balch has at least three major job openings to fill in the initial days of his term: director of secondary education, Child Nutrition Program director and superintendent's secretary.

First priority

The first priority is the director of secondary education with the pending retirement of Carolyn Ellinger.

The school system received eight applicants for the secondary director's position. Balch said he interviewed the candidates earlier this week, and outgoing Superintendent Don Murphy will make a recommendation on his behalf at the school board's Dec. 14 meeting.

The applicants are:

  • Mary Marquart, school improvement specialist, Morgan County central office.

  • Robbie Smith, counselor, Danville High School.

  • Mary Speegle, math teacher, Priceville High School.

  • Mary Beth Henry, teacher, Priceville High School.

  • Lee Willis, assistant principal, Brewer High School.

  • Vicki Smith, math specialist, Huntsville City Schools.

  • Layne Dillard, principal, Morgan County Learning Center.

  • Kim Mooney, teacher, Falkville High School.
