Champaign superintendent finalist withdraws from consideration

CHAMPAIGN - Steven Cobb, a finalist for the Champaign school district's superintendent position, has withdrawn from consideration, said district spokeswoman Lynn Peisker.

Cobb withdrew for personal reasons.

The remaining candidates include Judy Wiegand, who works in the district as assistant superintendent for achievement and public services and will be the district's next interim superintendent, as well as Darryl Taylor, superintendent of Lincoln Elementary School District in Calumet City, and Johnnie Thomas, associate superintendent for student services for a high school district in Arlington Heights.

A committee of community members is interviewing the candidates this week. Those interviews are not open to the public.
