After 23 years in the Jessamine County school system, the last four as deputy superintendent, Owens Saylor is going west to become the new chief of schools in Daviess County. Former Daviess County superintendent Tom Shelton left last summer to take the same post in Fayette County. “I took a look at my age and the opportunities that I have, and I found Daviess County to be a very interesting district,” Saylor, 54, said. “When that opening became available, I started studying the land and decided that was something that I was very interested in, and I was lucky enough to get the job.” The Daviess County Public Schools Board of Education made the decision to select Saylor at a special called meeting Monday with a 4-1 vote, Owensboro's Messenger-Inquirer reported, with the lone “no” vote coming from a member who wanted to keep interim superintendent Mike Gray.
