Beverly High principal a superintendent finalist


Hiersche and Keough were two of the three finalists for the superintendent’s job in Hopkinton earlier this year. Hiersche was the interim superintendent in Hopkinton.

The advertisement for the Beverly superintendent’s job said candidates must have a minimum of a master’s degree, but a doctorate is preferred.

Thirty-two candidates applied for the job, and 16 were interviewed by Argenziano. Argenziano selected nine semifinalists who were interviewed by a superintendent search committee this week. The search committee selected the four finalists.

The nine-member search committee included Mayor Bill Scanlon and School Committee members Paul Manzo and Maria Decker, as well as parents, teachers, administrators and members of the general public.

After the public interviews of the candidates in November, School Committee members will conduct site visits of the finalists. The superintendent is expected to be chosen in early December and to start work in January.
