MENOMINEE — The Menominee Area Schools Board of Education Friday night voted to give an intent to hire Terri Mileski as their new superintendent.
Board secretary Marye Mathieu said if a contract is negotiated with the school board and Mileski, there will be a motion on the June 19 board meeting to hire her.
The vote was 4-0. Absent from the meeting were Ken Pulver as he is out of country and Jay Thomas and William Kakuk who were out of state.
Mathieu said the closed meeting was held Friday at 8 p.m. because Mileski was interviewed last Wednesday and the board needed to let her know within a week if she was hired.
“We had a quorum for Friday night and wanted to let her know that we wanted to offer her the job,” Mathieu said.
Mark Eckert of Michigan Leadership Services, who is conducting the search for the district, recommended the board hire Mileski.
Mileski is currently superintendent at Concord Community Schools in Concord, Mich. where she has been for four years.
A native of Grand Rapids, Mileski was an assistant principal at Escanaba Public Schools for seven years before she was a superintendent at Rapid River Public Schools for five years.  
Mileski has 23 years in teaching and her husband is from the U.P.
The other two final superintendent candidates were Maryann Boddy, principal at Iron Mountain School District and Kipp Beaudoin, junior and senior high school principal at Niagara School District.
