Keevin Woody, the principal at Midway Elementary School, is one of five finalists for the director of schools position in Loudon County. 
The Loudon County Board of Education was set to vote on the list of finalists on Thursday, April 7.
“We will be voting on that list of five and either leaving it that way, or adding one or two,” Vice Chairman Gary Ubben said.
Ubben said each of the candidates will be invited in for an hour-and-a-half interview on April 15.                                                                                                                                            
“Then the board meets on the 18th, where we will narrow that list of five or six down to two or three,” Ubben said.   
The Tennessee School Boards Association announced earlier this year that Woody was one of nine people to complete the Prospective Superintendents Academy.
“The academy provides 16 days of training designed to help those with experience in such fields as education, business, military, government or public service acquire the unique knowledge and skills necessary to manage a school system,” TSBA said in a press release.
