An Invitation to Meet our Athletic Director/Wellness Department Chair Finalists

You are invited to meet the AD/Wellness Department Chair finalists at Newton South! The Athletic Director/Wellness Department Selection Committee has selected 3 finalists for the position, and we are very excited about the strengths of these educators. The selection committee has been meeting for the past 3 weeks and chose to interview 7 candidates from the 80 applications we received. From the many highly qualified candidates, we have chosen 3 finalists who will be returning to South next week for full day site visits on Monday, April 14, Tuesday, April 15 and Wednesday, April 16. The finalists are Patricia Gonzalez, Katrina Antonellis, and Tom Bresnahan. Parents are invited to meet with the candidates from 10-10:50AM each day, and to provide written feedback after the meeting. During the rest of the day, each applicant will meet with coaches, students, wellness teachers, and administrators. 

We hope that you will join us in the teacher’s cafeteria at 10AM on Monday, Tuesday and/or Wednesday to meet the candidates and share your feedback.
