The Nashville School District has interviewed two more applicants for the Scrapperette softball coaching position, bringing the total to 15 who have interviewed.
Chad Hutson, who has coached at Woodlawn for the last 10 years, interviewed Monday night, according to Superintendent Doug Graham. Hutson was a member of the East coaching staff in the recent All-Star softball game.
Jenna Smart, pitching coach at the University of Central Arkansas interviewed last week.
Among the other applicants are David Price of St. Martin High School in Ocean Springs, Miss.; Olivia Guinn, a Ouachita Baptist graduate who was later hired at a high school in Texas; and Jennifer Hickman, current coach at Bastrop, who decided to remain there.
“These have been some of the front-runners,” Graham said. “We’re pretty close. I hope to call a special board meeting in the next week to name a coach.”
Graham said resumes have been collected for another position, dyslexia interventionist, who will be shared with the Mineral Springs district. Graham said he and MIneral Springs Superintendent Curtis Turner Jr. will try to meet later this week to discuss the hire.
