Colorado man likely to become next Alliance High School principal

Posted: Updated:
A Colorado man may soon be the next Alliance High School principal pending state certification and a school board approval.

Alliance Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Troy Unzicker says Mr. George Clear of Kersey, Colorado has verbally accepted the High School Principal position.

This comes after two Nebraska men were also vying for the position in late April.

Unzicker says the school board and administration wanted a third candidate after one individual backed out last month.

Unzicker says Mr. Clear had an interview on Monday and met with district representatives including parents, students, classified staff and teachers.

"All three groups had him as the highest scoring candidate," said Unzicker explaining Clear's interview process.

The superintendent called Clear after the school board meeting last night and offered him the position.

Mr. Clear has to regain his Nebraska certification. The last six or seven years he has been a middle school principal in Colorado and previously spent about three years as a principal in Ogallala.

"So we're not expecting an issue there and then of course it has to go in front of the board for final approval which again I'm not expecting issues so we have a verbal acceptance and we're really excited to have Mr. George Clear on board to Alliance Public Schools," said Unzicker.

When asked about the previous two finalists from Nebraska, Kevin Walker of Auburn and Darrin Max of Anselmo-Merna, Unzicker explained, "that both candidates were solid but for different reasoning it just didn't work out and we wish them success."

Unzicker says Clear is likely to start the new position August 1st.

On March 26th, Dr. Vickie Grant stepped in as the Building Administrator for the high school after Dr. Pat Jones resigned and left for the remainder of the school year. Unzicker says Jones's resignation will be effective at the end of the school year.
