Pequot Lakes superintendent not among top two Farmington finalists

PEQUOT LAKES — Rick Linnell, the Pequot Lakes School District superintendent who had earlier made the Farmington School Board’s list of four finalists for the superintendent post, was not among the top two finalists in that district. 

The Star Tribune of Minneapolis reported the Farmington School Board chose St. Anthony-New Brighton Superintendent Rod Thompson and West St. Paul-Mendota Heights-Eagan Superintendent Jay Haugen as the top two finalists.

Linnell has been superintendent at Pequot Lakes since 2006. He could not be reached for comment Monday.
