ATHOL — Following interviews conducted Wednesday night, the School Committee for the Athol Royalston Regional School District unanimously selected Matt Ehrenworth, assistant superintendent at Blackstone-Millville Regional School District. He will start work on July 1, pending the outcome of contract negotiations.

The committee chose from four finalists: Northampton Public Schools Superintendent John Provost; Ehrenworth; Cynthia Kennedy, the district’s director of intervention and acceleration; and Marlene DiLeo, superintendent of schools in Ware.

Athol-Royalston Superintendent Darcy Fernandes is leaving the job at the end of her current contract.

Provost and DiLeo were both passed over for the superintendent job in Leicester last week. The School Committee in the Worcester County town chose Brett Kustigian, currently the superintendent of Quaboag Regional Public Schools, to lead the district.
