CASS LAKE—Cass Lake-Bena Schools' superintendent was a finalist for a spot in Gov.-elect Tim Walz's cabinet.

Rochelle Johnson was one of hundreds who applied to lead one of 23 state agencies in the incoming Walz administration. She was one of four finalists who interviewed to lead the Minnesota Department of Education, but Walz and Lt. Gov.-elect Peggy Flanagan, a member of White Earth Nation who became the first American Indian woman elected to statewide executive office, chose Mary Cathryn Ricker, the executive vice president of the American Federation of Teachers. Staff on the governor's transition team announced Ricker's hire Thursday.
