The Christian County Board of Education had no comment to say after being in closed session for nearly three hours tonight to discuss hiring Superintendent Brady Link’s replacement.
During closed session, board members met with Madison County Assistant Superintendent and Chief Operations Officer Marvin Welch, who is the only candidate named to be in the running to become the next superintendent of the Christian County Public Schools.
Upon conclusion of the closed session, Board Chairman Barry Cornelius had no comment to say about whether or not Welch was offered the position.
Prior to tonight’s meeting, Welch met with various community leaders this morning during a breakfast at the Christian County Chamber of Commerce and told attendees that Christian and Madison Counties had several traits in common.
Welch says even though Christian County is more diverse than Madison County, he feels he’s equipped to help students of all backgrounds succeed and help this area continue to overcome the achievement gap.
Welch is among 15 candidates to apply for the superintendent position.
