Over the last several weeks, we have been conducting a second search for the next Principal at Reading Memorial High School. Twenty candidates applied for the position during the second round and the Reading Memorial High School Principal Screening Committee interviewed seven candidates from that pool in a series of day long interviews last Tuesday. As a result of those interviews, the Screening Committee forwarded to Superintendent of Schools John Doherty three candidates who were well qualified to become the next Principal at RMHS. Those three candidates went through a second round of interviews on Thursday.
