Knoxville Schools Will Miss Experience of Retiring Individuals

12 faculty and staff members of the Knoxville School District took advantage of a retirement incentive program and will be retiring from their positions at the end of the school year. Knoxville Schools Superintendent Dr. Randy Flack says it’s very tough to see such quality people go and their experience and skills will be missed. He says they’ve done a great service dedicating their life to educating children. Dr. Flack comments that three positions will not be re-filled at the Middle School, and elementary art will become a part-time position. Overall, the incentive program will save the district about $435,000.

Those retiring at the end of this school year after being approved for the retirement incentive program:

– Co Crew
– Cathy Dent
– Joe Ferguson
– Brent Hanna
– Mary Hanna
– Mary Keefer
– Ross Leeper
– Bonnie Nichols
– Joel Tonda
– Cindy Vande Kamp
– Kathy Wilson
– Sue Wright
