Assistant Superintendent Harry Bull named sole finalist for top job
The Cherry Creek Board of Education announced Monday, Jan. 14, 2013 at its regular meeting that Dr. Harry Bull, currently Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources, is the sole finalist for the position of superintendent after the retirement of Superintendent Mary Chesley at the end of the current school year.

“The Cherry Creek Board of Education’s number one task is to appoint the Superintendent of Schools,” board member Claudine McDonald said. “I know that Dr. Bull has demonstrated a strong commitment to the district. “

McDonald went on to say that the board reviewed letters of reference for Bull from a broad range of educational leaders as well as leaders from outside of the education system, interviewed him on his plan and philosophy for the future of the Cherry Creek School District, and evaluated his credentials.

Bull, who was awarded a doctorate of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from the University of Northern Colorado, began his career as a social studies teacher at Aurora Central High School in 1980.

He came to the Cherry Creek School District in 1984 and taught at Overland High School. He also has held the positions of assistant principal at Smoky Hill High School, principal at Grandview High School and executive director of high schools, before assuming his current position in 2010.

Among the honors he has received are Administrator of the Year from the Colorado High School Press Association, Honor Administrator of the Year from the Colorado Music Educators’ Association, and School Library Journal Administrator of the Year.

“I truly believe that Dr. Bull is the most qualified candidate for the superintendent’s position for the Cherry Creek School District,” board member Jim O’Brien said. “I believe that he is totally devoted to our vision of dedicated to excellence.”

According to Colorado law, the board must wait 14 days from the date of the announcement, before officially appointing Bull as superintendent.
