Thank You Lawrence County
After serving in public education as a teacher, school counselor, assistant principal, principal, and superintendent for over 34 years, I have decided that I will retire at the end of July. I have enjoyed serving in every position during my public school career. I came to Lawrence County in 2016 and have entered my fifth school year as director of schools. I find this community and our community leaders welcoming, helpful, and supportive of public education. Thank you to our School Board for the opportunity to serve in Lawrence County. My colleagues and support staff in the Central Office are outstanding.
Our LCSS principals and assistant principals are remarkable school leaders. I appreciate the outstanding work of our teachers, support staff, food services, maintenance, and transportation personnel in teaching, helping, encouraging, and taking care of our students.
We have worked together to build a culture of caring, and we say, “Find the Good and Praise it!” ACT scores are up, the LCSS graduation rate was 97.3 % last year, more of our students are college and career ready, and most have a plan for post secondary education or employment.
I believe it is time for me to step into the next chapter of life. Thank you Lawrence County, you are in my heart always!
