...As word began to circulate Thursday about the board’s expected choice, some were disappointed that the next superintendent would not reflect the increasing diversity of the school system. Smith is the system’s third white male superintendent in a row, following Starr and Jerry Weast.
“I think it’s time that people be a little more bold with their leadership choices,” said Joseph Hawkins, a longtime activist on education issues in Montgomery.
“Our leaders should reflect the new demographics,” he said.
Durso, the school board president, said that diversity in leadership “was an important factor and remains an important factor, but we felt we made the best choice.”
