Barkdoll to assist superintendent
By DAVE MCMILLION
Andrew McMahon, assistant to the Washington County schools superintendent, will leave his job in two weeks to work for a Rockville, Md., firm.
McMahon has accepted a job with Aspen Systems, which provides warehousing space and high-tech assistance to companies.
McMahon came to the school system in December 1996 to oversee the transportation, food service, finance and facility maintenance departments.
There were conflicting accounts among Washington County Board of Education members Monday as to what McMahon's job duties were.
Former interim schools superintendent Linda Barkdoll has been named to take over McMahon's duties, according to school officials.
Barkdoll will make $69,579 in her new job, said John Hull, acting director of human resources.
Barkdoll headed the local school system for five months while the school board searched for a new superintendent.
