ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The man selected to be the new superintendent of Dougherty County Schools was 34th out of 37th in the ranking of qualifications for the school system's top job.
Dr. Joshua Murfree was released as the sole finalist for the position, but that wasn't true.
A media lawsuit forced the board to release information on the other finalists for the job.
It showed a number of highly qualified candidates applied for the position, candidates with much more experience that Dr. Joshua Murfree.
Saturday supporters of Murfree gathered to tell the community he's the right man for the job.
They gathered in downtown Albany to show their support.
"People in the community want the school board members to know that we're in support of them and their decision to select and hire Dr. Murfree to be superintendent of the Dougherty County School system," said Reverend Eddie Bankston, People Clergy Community Involvement.
No matter who the other finalists are Murfree's supporters say they'll support him.
Once that information is released on the other candidates board members must wait 14 days before officially hiring someone.
If the top candidate is still Joshua Murfree the board will have to vote one more time to hire him as superintendent.
