The Griffin-Spalding County School System announced Thursday three finalists for the position of principal at Griffin High School.Narrowing down the applicants from 55, Scott John, principal at Pike County Middle School, Andria McNeal, assistant principal at South Effingham High School, and Keith Simmons, principal at the Monroe County Achievement Center, were recommended to Superintendent Curtis Jones by an interview committee.Asked why no employee of the local school system was among the finalists, Director of Human Resources Andy Matthews said that all applicants receive a set of questions, and each committee member then gives scores to the responses.Two internal applicants made it to the second round, she said.’We don’t go into (the interviews) with an outcome planned,’ she said. “There’s not even a set number of finalists to be recommended to the superintendent.”’After the interview committee scored these three individuals as the top finalists for the Griffin High School principal, I spent a most enjoyable day talking to each of them,’ Curtis Jones noted. ‘They are fine candidates, and the Griffin-Spalding County School System would be fortunate to have any of them as administrators.’The Griffin-Spalding County Board of Education is expected to vote on Jones’ final choice at its meeting Tuesday.
