One of the men interviewed by President Trump on May 17 to replace James Comey as FBI director is a 1980 Unionville High School graduate.

Richard A. McFeely, a former top FBI official, was a standout scholar/athlete at Unionville, playing football and track and feild. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice from the University of Delaware and a Juris Doctor degree from the Delaware Law School. He is married and has three children. His father, Dr. Dick McFeely, was a longtime chief of staff at New Bolton Center.

In a CNBC article posted Wednesday, it was reported that Trump planned to meet with four candidates for FBI director – former Sen. Joe Lieberman, acting FBI chief Andrew McCabe, former Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating, and McFeely.
Trump fired Comey last week as he was leading an investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.
