ROANOKE CO. (WSLS 10) - Residents will know who the new Roanoke County Superintendent will be very soon. 

The School Board plans to announce their decision Thursday night. 

They had a pool of 19 people to choose from for the position. The process began in August 2014. 

WSLS 10 is learning more about the finalists. They brought in seven people to interview, and three currently work for Roanoke County. 

They were looking for someone with ties to Virginia because many other states don't have the same testing methods as we do. They also wanted someone that understood Roanoke County and what the county was about.
