ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - The race for Rapides schools superintendents narrowed to three finalists on Thursday.
The Town Talk reports a vote by the Rapides Parish School Board put Tony Authement of Houma and Rick Williams of McKinney, Texas, in the first two slots.
A tie left the third slot open to another vote. Karl Carpenter of Pineville and Maria Pitre-Martin of Holly Springs, N.C., were tied with four votes each.
A second round of voting went in favor of Carpenter, 5-4.
The finalists will have a second interview with the school board in executive session on April 4.
