The Indianapolis Public Schools Board of Commissioners has picked three finalists to succeed Dr. Eugene White as superintendent.

The three have been picked for a second interview.

“They are all incredibly bright with a passion for educating children,” said School Board President Diane Arnold.

The finalists are:

  • Thomas Darden, Executive Director of New York Schools for ASPIRA, Inc.
  • Lewis Ferebee, Chief of Staff for the Durham Public Schools
  • Millard House, Chief Operating Officer for Charlotte-Mecklenberg Schools

IPS will introduce all three finalists on Thursday evening, giving each a chance to meet the public and discuss the future of the school district. The public sessions are:

  • Thomas Darden: 6 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
  • Lewis Ferebee 6:45 p.m. – 7:15 p.m.
  • Millard House 7:30 p.m. – 8 p.m.

The community meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the Board Room of the John Morton-Finney Center for Educational Services at 120 E. Walnut St.

For the second round of interviews, each candidate will meet with board members, tour the district and the city, participate in the community forum and have dinner with board members.

Darden will interview Wednesday, Ferebee will interview Thursday and House will interview Friday. Board members will hold an Executive Session Saturday morning and could announce their choice at the end of that meeting.
