Two Educators Named Finalists For EBR School Superintendent Job


East Baton Rouge officials are reportedly choosing between two out-of-state finalists to be the next superintendent.

The parish school board met yesterday and narrowed the finalists down to Leslie Brown from Fort Lauderdale, Florida and Nakia Towns from Chattanooga, Tennessee.

According to reports, Brown has been a top administrator with Broward County Schools, the nation's sixth largest school district, for the past 13 years.

Towns is now chief of staff for the Hamilton County Department of Education in Tennessee.
