2 apply for DOE superintendent position

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - At least two individuals have applied to lead the largest agency in the Government of Guam. The Guam Education Board is hoping for a larger pool of applicants as the deadline for applications is the close of business this Thursday. Dr. Paul Pineda is leading the search committee and will report back to the board on the number of applicants. 

At least one individual from off island-has applied, as has Governor Eddie Calvo's education liaison, Vince Leon Guerrero. GEB chairman Francis Santos said, "If we can get the candidate on board as soon as possible given what we're facing with the time constraints that will be realistic, but honestly if we get a candidate on board we still have to negotiate a contract."

Leon Guerrero submitted his application today and declined to comment any further until the selection process is finished.

The deadline to apply is this Thursday, June 30 and current DOE superintendent Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood and her deputies' contracts expire on July 22.
