Eminence Independent Schools Superintendent Don Aldridge said he isn’t going anywhere.

His statement was in response to a report in the Lexington Herald-Leader listing Aldridge as one of five finalists for the Clark County Public Schools Superintendent.

Aldridge said he sent out a few resumes recently. “I told the board two months ago I was going to interview for positions,” he said. “You have to keep those interview skills sharp.”

According to the Herald-Leader, current Clark County superintendent Ed Musgrove’s resignation is effective June 30.

The recruitment process has been narrowed to a field of five educators including Aldridge. Other finalists are Interim Kentucky Education Commissioner Elaine Farris, Kentucky Association of School Councils education leader Lisa Stone, Jennings County, Ind., Assistant Superintendent Stephen Dickerson and Clark County Public Schools Operations Director Paul Christy.

Aldridge, who has a home in Winchester, the county seat of Clark County, said he plans to retain his position as Eminence Schools superintendent until retirement.

“I plan to work another three or four years,” he said.
