Cash Withdraws from Charlotte Job Search
(Memphis) Memphis City Schools Superintendent Dr. Kriner Cash has withdrawn his name for consideration for the Superintendent of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District.
Cash had been included in that district’s final three candidates and had flown to Charlotte for interviews with the search committee and the public.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg board decided this week against travelling to the home cities of its final candidates including Memphis.
The other two candidates for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg job are Heath Morrison from Reno, NV and Ann Clark, a long-time Charlotte schools employee.
The following statement was released by Memphis City Schools Thursday evening:
“After thoughtful consideration and the counsel of my family, I made the decision to withdraw my name from the list of finalists. We have made a tremendous amount of progress in Memphis City Schools during the last four years and it is my hope to see our students and staff members continue on an upward trajectory. I congratulate CMS on the selection of their new superintendent and I wish them the best as they move forward. My focus continues to be on the academic achievement of our students as we prepare for the upcoming testing season and the graduation of our 2012 senior class.”
Kriner Cash, Ed.D.
