 “I cannot tell you how appreciative I am that Martha has agreed to come out of retirement to help us out,” said Superintendent Joseph Joyner. “This gives me a tremendous amount of peace and will allow us to continue to move forward as I take the necessary time for a quality search.”
“I am looking forward to working with the team again,” said Martha Mickler. “I am very glad to be of assistance during the transition time and support the district.”
