Following the disability of Keith Bolen, school board superintendent Mark Cleveland set out to find a replacement for the plant maintenance supervisor.

Cleveland chose Dan Logan, who had previously served as road supervisor for the Owen County Road Department.

Bolen had medical problems and received a doctor’s statement that he could not return to work.

“We advertised that the position was open,” Cleveland said. “We received about 15 applications.”

Cleveland said he had more than one qualified applicant.

“I looked at one candidate very strongly,” Cleveland said. “He had impressive credentials, he interviewed well and seemed like a very honest person, but in the end I felt Dan was better cut out for the position.”

Cleveland said his final decision was based on several factors.

“Not only was I looking for someone who could manage a group of people well, but I also needed someone who could deal with a budget and knew how to plan,” Cleveland said.

Cleveland said Logan’s previous position as road supervisor helped assure him that Logan was the right choice.

“Since Dan had been the road supervisor, I knew he was very knowledgeable about day-to-day routine maintenance,” Cleveland said.
