Superintendent Tim Murley announced his retirement, effective February 28th, at Monday night's meeting of the Warren County school board.
The Bowling Green Daily News reports Murley cited personal reasons for stepping down saying he wanted to spend more time with his family. He's been with the district for more than 30 years.
Board President Kerry Young said after the meeting that the school board will name an interim superintendent and will decide whether to form a search committee or to hire a company to conduct a superintendent search.
Warren County's newest school is named in honor of career educator and long-serving state representative former Speaker of the House Jody Richards. The $12 million school on Elrod Road in south Warren County features state of the art energy efficient systems and a healthy cafeteria kitchen with no deep fried food.
