Search committee reviewing superintendent apps

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - The Guam Education Board will meet this week to review the applications for the Department of Education's superintendent position. With less than three weeks until current superintendent Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood's contract is set to expire, the board's search committee will review the applications during a meeting this Wednesday. 

Search Committee chairman Dr. Paul Pineda told KUAM News, "We will forward the top three applicants to the board and then the board will vote on who the next superintendent will be...with Dr. Underwood willing to stay beyond her contract and her management team working with the new one coming in, we should have a pretty good, easy transition."

Ten individuals submitted their application to lead the largest agency in the Government of Guam. Two people who currently live off-island applied - Michelle Mendiola and Dr. Faye Untalan. The other applicants include Governor's Education Liasion Vincent Leon Guerrero, Salvador Avilla, Elwin Quitano, Albert San Agustin, Begona Flores, Jeanette Yamashita, Will Castro and Ken Chargualaf. 

The search committee is scheduled to meet this Wednesday at 7am at the DOE Conference Room.
