Fayette BOE announces three finalists for superintendent

The Fayette County Board of Education in a meeting Tuesday night announced the names of three finalists in the search for the person to replace retired Superintendent John DeCotis, including a name familiar to many.

The finalists included former school system Assistant Superintendent Lyn Wenzel, Dr. Jeffrey Byron Bearden and Dr. Roy “Cole” Pugh.

Additional information on the finalists will be provided by the school system Wednesday. That information will be posted here when it is made available.

Board Chairman Terri Smith announced that the new superintendent will be chosen at a future meeting of the school board.

Of the three, Wenzel is a veteran of the Fayette School System.

She retired from the system a year ago as the assistant superintendent for instruction, one of two assistant superintendents under Dr. John DeCotis. When she left in the summer of 2009, Wenzel was making the second highest pay in the system: $131,459, according to a story in The Citizen.

Prior to her transfer to the system’s central office in 2003 as the county’s director of curriculum, Wenzel was the long-time principal of J.C. Booth Middle School in Peachtree City.

Wenzel was Booth’s principal in 2000 when the school won its fifth straight championship in the National Science Olympiad.

Neither Deputy Superintendent Fred Oliver nor Assistant Superintendent Sam Sweat applied for the position.
