ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Dougherty County School Board announced its selection of the new Assistant Superintendent.

Board members selected Kenneth Goseer to replace former Deputy Superintendent Carlos Keith. Goseer served as the Principal of Terrell County Middle School since 2004.

Superintendent Joshua Murfree says principals, assistant principals, and students helped make up his committee to select Goseer as a top candidate.

Murfree says he went through a formal and informal interview process. He spoke to school system officials and people in the community learn more about Goseer.

"I want to bring on a person who's going to be loyal to the system and loyal to the superintendent of schools so we can move forward and when I looked at all that , Kenneth Goseer is the person I'm selecting," said Murfree.

Goseer still has to accept the offer. Even though he will fulfill some of the same roles as the former deputy superintendent, Murfree plans to make some organizational changes.
