Posted: Updated:

Guam - A total of six people applied for the job of the superintendent of the Department of Education: Jon Jon Fernandez, Dr. Tupeni Lebaivalu Baba, Dr. Antoinette Laguana Morta, Michelle Mendiola, Elwin C. Quitano, and David Leon Guerrero Shimizu. The position has been vacant since former superintendent Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood retired last year.

Although there were initially two potential candidates to replace her - Vince Leon Guerrero and Salvador Avilla - they didn't manage to get enough support from the Guam Education Board, which led to a new search. The deadline to apply was Tuesday.

The board will now review the applications and conduct interviews.
