    Job Board 2018

    Southwestern also passed on Eric Hale, who from my understanding truly wanted this job! I’m sorry, but these people have lost it!!!!

    The biggest issue anymore is that you would hope directors set-up the program for success when they leave, but who is to say the new director doesn't come in and change it all. I have seen it happen both ways. Sometimes it can be good for programs, and other times it will just scare off students. Change is huge for kids at this age of life. I hope everyone has successful time with all the changes. I can only imagine what it's going to be like in years to come.

    Southwestern will not make a hire until the middle of June. The plus part for them is they have a very capable Assistant Director that can handle things for the program

    I agree with you on the potential factor for Southwestern, I will say that when they hire, said person will be pleased and blessed to walk into such a wonderful situation. When Dan Carpenter took over that program he only had a hand full of students to work with. Now between Dan, and Adam Hopper, they have really taken the program to the next level with getting students involved. Southwestern will have close to 100 on the field again this season if not more. I believe Dan has done a wonderful job with what he has been given. I commend him on a job well done, and hope he has a fantastic retirement.

    The information that I was given was the “principal” was worried about him only being there for a few years since he was retired! My response was; who cares, it would be a damn good few years!!!

    They passed on Philip Sohn, who just finished his student teaching from my understanding, but is a fantastic educator, and then they passed on Eric Hale which his history speaks for itself!

    East Jessamine has a made a new hire! It will be released on Monday! Sad part is they passed on the two best candidates that went for the job!

    It was Kip Crowder and Eric Hale, it's not that big of a secret! Hopefully the school finds success through the hiring process

    Increase in MSBA shows in KY

    Unless things have changed, Bourbon will still be hosting a KMEA contest as usual so they should be fine. Overall you have to look at the bigger picture, and that is based on Central States being able to actually feel the panels for all of these shows. CSJA took a big hit years back when a lot of the core judges left the judging circuit. Since then they have had less than sub par panels on the shows, and now with twice as many shows I do not see this working in favor of Central States. I truly enjoy the overall atmosphere of Mid-States, but if they begin to feel panels with less than stellar judges then it just turns into KMEA all over again during the season.
