GREENVILLE — Greenville High School Principal Jeff Wright has been named one of three finalist for the superintendent opening at Hastings Area Schools and will have a second interview Tuesday.

Wright interviewed as one of six finalist for the job Friday and was informed Saturday he advanced to the second round of interviews, he told The Daily News.

“I love being the principal at Greenville, this is a unique opportunity for me,” Wright said Thursday. “The possibility of being a superintendent is a great opportunity for me, especially at a district like Hastings.”

Wright has been principal at Greenville High School since 2010 and has been with the district since 2008, when he was hired as Baldwin Heights Elementary principal.

According to the Hastings district website, Wright will be in the district most of the day Tuesday to meet with stakeholders and staff before his interview in front of the school board at 7 p.m.

The other candidates for the job are Peter Bush, Coopersville High School principal, and Carrie Duits, assistant superintendent at Weld Re-8 School District in Fort Lupton, Colo.

Those two candidates interview Wednesday and March 21 respectively.

Hastings, about 40 miles south of Belding in Barry County, has a school district of just shy of 3,000 students. Comparatively, Greenville has just fewer than 4,000 students.
