Three finalists chosen for business manager post

It’s down to three finalists for the position of Detroit Lakes Public School District business manager.

According to Superintendent Doug Froke, the district has whittled the pool of 13 applicants to three, which have all agreed to an interview to be held Monday.

The final three include current Becker County Auditor Ryan Tangen, Pelican Rapids School Business Manager Stephanie Winjum and Concordia College Business Manager Tracy Tollefson.

The final three applicants will be interviewed by a committee of school board members, Froke, and the district’s current business manager, Nancy Olson.

Olson is stepping away from the position after a year and a half in order to assume her previous position as the district’s Human Resources Director, a job she says she had always enjoyed and missed.

Once Monday’s interviews are conducted, Froke says they’ll make a determination as to whether there should be a second interview scheduled or if a candidate will be chosen that evening.
