XENIA — The Xenia Community Schools have scheduled three special meetings, including a rare Saturday meeting, to complete its search for a board member to replace the seat vacated by Lee Rose, who resigned effective Dec. 31.

The board has named five candidates who will be interviewed in the process. They are:

• Dr. Nodie Washington;

• Pam Callahan;

• Dr. James “Rick” McClelland;

• David Mills; and

• Dr. Willie Houston, Jr.

The meetings will be held at 6:30 p.m. tonight, Jan. 8 and Thursday, Jan. 9 at the board office at 819 Colorado Drive.

The third meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 11. At this meeting, final interviews will be held in executive session, along with deliberations about the selection. The new board member will be selected following a vote in a public session.

The board will also meet Monday, Jan. 13, the first meeting with five members present.

In a statement released Wednesday, the board stated “We look forward to a productive process. It is the intention of the Board of Eduction to move forward as a team for the benefit of the students and families we serve.”
