Public meets with Birmingham supt candidate

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The public had a chance to meet one of the three finalists in the Birmingham superintendent search.

Candidate Dr. Frederick Hill answered questions before a small group of people.

The public and some school board members want the search committee to cease the current search and start over.

Some aren't happy with the finalists. Others feel the process was expedited.

The search committee's chair, April Williams, says the process will continue.

But on Thursday during final deliberations, they say things could change.

There's no guarantee any of the top three candidates will be named the new superintendent.

"If we get to that place we feel we have not identified the best suited candidate, we can make a decision at that time," said April Williams.

Williams regrets the problems with search and how "messy" it's gotten.

The next meet and greet is Wednesday with Valya Lee.

It's from 5:00 to 6:30 at Phillips Academy's library.
