The first candidate to interview for Hays USD 489 superintendent recently joined the district in an interim position.

Keith Hall started as interim executive director of finance and support services for USD 489 this month, leaving as superintendent of Osborne USD 392, a position he'd had for 10 years. Prior to that, he was principal at Stockton High School from 2002 to 2008.

The public will have the opportunity to meet with Hall at a reception from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon in the Teopfer Board Room of the Rockwell Administration Center, 323 W. 12th.

Hall will tour schools and visit with district officials and staff throughout the day. The interview with the board will take place Wednesday evening.

Another candidate will be interviewed Thursday. The remaining two finalists will be interviewed next week.
