The Garland school board Thursday named Mansfield Superintendent Bob Morrison the sole finalist for superintendent to replace Curtis Culwell who is retiring.

The vote was 6-0.

During the four-month search for a new superintendent, trustees kept the candidates secret, district spokesman Chris Moore said.

"The trustees have really done an excellent job to maintain anonymity for those folks who applied," Moore said.

By law, the board now must wait at least 21 days before offering Morrison a contract.

Culwell's base pay was $285,000.

Morrison was appointed Mansfield superintendent in January 2009 as Vernon Newsom was headed to retirement. Newsom was killed in a motorcycle wreck in July, a month after he retired.
