Clovis names superintendent finalists

Clovis school officials on Tuesday named five finalists for their superintendent’s position.

The finalists are:

• David Briseno, principal at Clovis’ La Casita Elementary and federal programs director for the district;

• Ladona Clayton, assistant superintendent for instruction of Clovis schools;

• William Reents, superintendent of Tucumcari schools;

• Rhonda Seidenwurm, deputy superintendent of instruction for Las Cruces public schools;

• Andy Sweet, former Clovis High School principal and now a Clovis High math teacher.

School board members said they received 11 applications for the superintendent’s job, which came open last year when Neil Nuttall accepted a position with a junior college in Missouri.
