Bartow County Public Schools Associate Superintendent Ben Desper has been named the finalist for the position of superintendent of schools at Pickens County.

Desper could not comment on the transition at this time, but The Daily Tribune obtained a press release from the Pickens County Board of Education saying the board must wait two weeks before voting to employ Desper.

According to the release, "The [Pickens County] Board of Education was impressed with Dr. Desper's knowledge and experience in finance and budgeting, curriculum and instruction, and his success as a principal at all levels."

A vote is expected as early as this week.
