Butler county BOE may name new HS principal Wednesday

A special called meeting of the Butler County Board of Education will be held Wednesday at 10 a.m. to hear who superintendent Darren Douthitt and his committee want to hire as principal of Greenville High School.

Douthitt said he couldn't release the name of the individual yet,  but "I believe the gentleman will do a good job and we tried to hire the best person we could find."

He said a committee of five or six helped him in the selection process. The committee included two teachers, a parent, individuals from the central office and a board member who was more or less an adviser.

The meeting will take place 10-11 a.m. at the BOE Central Office Boardroom at 949 Oglesby Street in Greenville and the public is strongly encouraged to attend.
