DLHS narrows principal field to two

After a total of seven candidates were interviewed for the position of Detroit Lakes High School principal over the past week, two finalists were chosen early today, according to Superintendent Doug Froke.

They are Darren Wolf, currently serving as assistant principal at Rogers High School in the Elk River School District, and Scott Monson, the current superintendent of Morris Public Schools.

The two finalists will be undergoing a much more in-depth interview process before a final decision is reached, Froke said.

Wolf will be interviewed Thursday morning, while Monson’s interview is scheduled for Friday morning.

Froke said the seven semi-finalists were interviewed by a small committee of teachers and administrators, for about an hour each. Those interviews concluded Monday.
