EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT
Here at RESA, we are so thankful for the work being done in our member schools. Faculty and staff have endured much more during the past few years than anyone could ever have imagined or expected. You are to be commended for a job well done. While this COVID virus will probably remain with us for some time, this past year was encouraging in that it appears to be controllable, and as the 2021-22 school year comes to an end, the 2022-23 school year will be even a better year.
It is with mixed emotions, mostly of excitement that I have submitted my letter of retirement/resignation to our Board of Control effective June 1, 2022. At the end of this school year, I will have completed a public education career of forty-nine years. A long time ago I taught biology and chemistry and was a high school principal. Most of the forty-nine years, thirty-one, I was a school district superintendent, and for the last six years I was honored to serve as the North GA RESA executive director. I have truly been Blessed with a distinguished career where I was surrounded by outstanding colleagues, board members, and most importantly, where I was able to serve children, their parents, and their communities. Just as I started as an extremely excited and idealistic teacher, I have been fortunate to end my career with that same excitement and idealism as I trekked through my journey. It has been an honor and a pleasure to serve as executive director. I will always cherish my time here just as I have with the other institutions where I served. The RESA is in great shape, has outstanding staff, and will continue to prosper in the years to come.
The Board of Control is actively searching for a new executive director and will hopefully determine my successor by early summer.
My wife, Megan, and I will make our permanent home in Carrabelle, Florida which is truly our happy place, and we both plan to remain active, part-time in our respective professions.
