HANNIBAL, Mo. -- The Missouri School Board Association will interview eight candidates for the Hannibal Public Schools superintendent position.

David Jackson, president of the Hannibal Public Schools Board of Education, said the board received 10 applications that met the criteria set for the new superintendent. The board reviewed those application packets during closed session last week and narrowed the field to eight candidates.

Brent Underwood, the district's consultant with the Missouri School Board Association, will conduct face-to-face interviews with the candidates. The Hannibal board will host personal interviews with candidates after Underwood's initial evaluations.

Candidate interviews are scheduled for early February.

Cooper, a golden doodle, is teacher Erin Armbruster's trained therapy dog, and his pawprints reach beyond just her classroom. "He helps out the students. He's a very good dog," fifth-grader Myles Cain said.
