6 are finalists for MHS job

By The Mercury

Six educators have been named candidates for the position of principal at Manhattan High School.

Names of the six were released Friday afternoon by USD 383 Supt. Bob Shannon, who laid out a schedule that would enable him to make a selection by mid-March.

Terry McCarty, the current MHS principal, has announced his resignation, effective at the end of the school year.

The six candidates are:

*Dustin Dick, an assistant principal at Topeka Highland Park High School.

*Angie Messer, an assistant principal at Junction City Middle School.

*Greg Hoyt, principal at Eisenhower Middle School.

*Shelly Swayne, principal at Solomon High School.

*David Holloway, assistant principal at Manhattan High School.

*Michael Dorst, assistant principal at Manhattan High School.

Each of the six is expected to go through a day-long process over the next two weeks that will include an interview with Shannon, an interview with a team comprised largely of district administrators and MHS faculty members, and a public meeting with interested parties. In each case, the public meetings will be held from 3:15 to 4 p.m. at the Manhattan High School West library. Dates for those sessions are: Dick, Monday, Feb. 18; Messer, Tuesday, Feb. 19; Hoyt, Thursday, Feb. 21; Swayne, Monday, Feb. 25; Holloway, Tuesday, Feb. 26; Dorst, Thursday.
