Selfors is a finalist for Stewartville superintendent position
By Tara Lindquist
Hayfield Community Schools superintendent Belinda Selfors is one of the two finalists for the superintendent position in Stewartville.
This is the second time that the Stewartville school district has interviewed for the position in this school year. Their first chosen candidate declined the position after being offered the job.
Selfors was one of four who was interviewed by the school board on Saturday. She will have her final interview Thursday evening.
Selfors has been the superintendent in Hayfield since May of 2014, she took over after Ron Evjen who led the district for 22 years.
Selfors said the first time the position came up she decided not to apply because her father-in-law had just passed away and it wasn't the right time.
"I thought that was God's way of closing the door on it," she said. "I am happy in Hayfield so I was ok with the timing not being right."
When the position was opened up again she decided maybe this was God's way of opening a window. Selfors said she is happy working in Hayfield with the staff and the students and would be thrilled to continue to work in Hayfield. "I'll be wherever I'm supposed to be," she said. "I'm not the one in charge."
