More than 300 candidates were recruited and screened for the position, and an eight-member committee whittled the field to 15 semi-finalists.
The finalists were selected for another round of interviews that will be conducted by Chief Executive Officer Hamilton McCubbin, executive managers and representatives of the schools' stakeholders group, including the Kamehameha Schools Faculty Association, Na Kumu O Kamehameha, parents, alumni and Na Pua A Pauahi.
It was a job that had been offered to former Kamehameha Schools president Michael Chun, who decided to take the headmaster position at the main campus on Kapalama Heights.
"The screening committee did a terrific job of identifying a very strong group of candidates," McCubbin said today.
The finalists are:
Dudley Hare Jr., executive director of the Westchester Education Coalition, a nonprofit organization established by the New York Westchester County corporations, government agencies and public schools.
Lila B. Lohr, senior vice president in charge of Day Schools for Chancellor Academies in Florida.
David W. Magill, superintendent of schools for the Lower Merion School District in Ardmore, Penn., where he has overseen a kindergarten through 12th grade district since 1991.
Niall C.W. Nelson, headmaster of Indonesia's Jakarta International Schools, overseeing a four-campus, K-12 program serving 2,500 students, 260 teachers, 400 support staff and a $40 million budget.
