Greenwood District 52 superintendent Dr. Mark Petersen has been named a finalist for the same position in Anderson District 2, which is made up of the Belton-Honea Path area.

According to a press release from Anderson District 2, Petersen is one of six candidates out of 26 that applied to receive an interview. The district named their three finalists in a press release on Friday. The release states that each of three finalists will spend two days in the district meeting with district staff and attending a community reception. Petersen is scheduled to visit the district Feb. 26-27.

Petersen is the only finalist that has any experience as a superintendent. The other two candidates, Dr. Richard Rosenberger and Dr. Joanne Avery, are both assistant superintendents in other districts. Rosenberger is the assistant superintendent of curriculum, instruction, technology and public relations for the Sapulpa School District in Broken Arrow, Okla. Avery is the deputy superintendent for human resources in Anderson District 4, located in Pendleton.

Petersen has been the superintendent in District 52 since 2009, when he took over for Dan Powell who retired. Anderson District 2’s current superintendent, Dr. Thomas Chapman, has reportedly said he would retire following the school year. The board of trustees for District 2 is expected to make a decision in mid to late March. The latest start date for their new superintendent is July 1.
