Four candidates made the short list out of 33 who applied to become the new Los Alamos Public Schools superintendent.

The finalists include John A Davis, Ed.D., of Cumberland Center, Maine, Walter G. Gibson of Los Lunas, N.M., Stephen R. Rowley, Ph.D., of Los Gatos, Calif., and Eugene J. Schmidt, Ph.D., of Bridgeport, Wash.

The Board of Education made the announcement Tuesday saying the finalists represent many years of experience in the classroom and in the administration of schools and school districts across the United States.

Immediate past president Steve Girrens has remained on the superintendent search committee.

“We have four high quality candidates and I’m excited and optimistic,” Girrens said. “The public will have an opportunity to meet each of them when they come to town for final interviews and to make their presentations to the community.”

A series of activities are planned for the four finalists when they visit Los Alamos for three days beginning April 16.
