Super candidate drops out

A candidate for superintendent of Wood County Schools this morning pulled his name from the final four under consideration.

Kenneth Moles, superintendent of Raleigh County (W.Va.) Schools, sent an email early this morning withdrawing his name, said Tim Yeater, president of the Wood County Board of Education.

The board was set to interview Moles and three other candidates Wednesday evening. Yeater said the board will move forward interviewing Ronald B. Cantley II, an assistant superintendent in Fayette County, W.Va.; John Flint, a retired Wood County Schools administrator; and Thomas Graves, a principal in Russel County, Va.

The board will hold a meeting at 6:30 p.m. today at its 13th and Plum street offices to receive comment from the public on the superintendent search process.
