(Greenfield, MA) –  The town of Greenfield is getting a new school superintendent.  The Greenfield School Committee Wednesday night voted unanimously to offer the job to Jordana Harper-Ewert of Amherst.  She’s currently an administrator in the Springfield public schools, and was recently a finalist for the Northampton school superintendency. The committee’s vote is contingent on the completion of successful contract negotiations. Harper-Ewert succeeds current superintendent Susan Hollins, who retires at the end of the school year.
