One of the finalists for Petersburg Superintendent has accepted a job in Wrangell and is no longer in the running for Petersburg. Jay Thomas will be Wrangell’s new superintendent. Thomas is from Unalakleet and was one of Petersburg’s three finalists chosen from a group of 18 applicants. He spent the last 13 years in education in Western Alaska.This leaves two Superintendent finalists who will be visiting Petersburg this week—Virginia Jewell from Georgia and Lisa Stroh from Valdez. The two will arrive in town Tuesday and stay through Friday. Their agenda includes meeting with school administrators, board members, and students, and touring the schools and community. They are available to meet with community members Wednesday evening at 7 at the high school library.
