Pennfield Public Schools has narrowed its choice to one finalist for the position of its superintendent, and the candidate is a St. Joseph County resident.
Stephanie Lemmer, currently chief of Centreville Public Schools, is the finalist identified by Pennfield district officials.
According to the district’s website, the board decided after interviewing four prospective superintendents Saturday that Lemmer was the lone candidate to be considered for the job.
The district staged a special meeting Wednesday to “interview the final candidate for the open superintendent position” and offer a tour of the district. Wednesday’s itinerary included a reception for staff and a formal, second-round interview later in the evening.
Lemmer, 40, has been Centreville’s superintendent since 2017. Her current salary is $111,000.
Previously, Lemmer served as director of Head Start for Kalamazoo County over a four-year period before coming to Centreville.
Pennfield district officials have stated they would like the new superintendent to begin the job in late January.
