Gov. Mead to Appoint New WDE Director Soon

The Wyoming State Board of Education announced this weekend that they've selected three finalists for the position of director of the Wyoming Department of Education.

The three candidates include retired Puyallup Public Schools superintendent, Tony Apostle, current Arizona state senator, Richard Crandall, and current superintendent of Springfield, Missouri's public schools, Norman Ridder. These three names were forwarded to Wyoming Governor Matt Mead on Saturday for prospective appointment.

In a media release, Governor Mead says he is pleased with the final pool of candidates. Based on Senate Enrolled Act 1, Governor Mead must appoint a new director by December 1 - but he says he'll select someone much sooner.
