NATCHEZ — The Concordia Parish School Board President Fred Butcher released the names of eight applicants for the superintendent of school’s position on Tuesday.

Butcher said as part of the application, all of the applicants to the position were informed that Louisiana law provides applications for school superintendent are public record and subject to release to the media or press.

The eight applicants include:

During Thursday’s regularly scheduled meeting of the Concordia Parish School Board, board members said they would start performing background checks on each of the applicants before interviewing them.
