Westerville superintendent search down to three


Three candidates for the post of Westerville City Schools superintendent will be vetted by the community next week.

The Westerville Board of Education announced Friday that it had narrowed the search to three candidates: Steve Estepp, executive director of K-12 curriculum and instruction for Hilliard City Schools; John Kellogg, South-Western City Schools assistant superintendent of curriculum; and Columbus City Schools Deputy Superintendent John Stanford.

The candidates will be subject to a daylong interview process Jan. 31, meeting during the day with several constituents groups and learning about different aspects of district operations and academics.

There will be a public forum from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. that evening at Westerville South High School, 303 S. Otterbein Ave.

The board is asking district employees and residents to attend the forum, during which they will hear the candidates speak and be invited to provide feedback on the candidates.
