June 28, 2012

A group of long-time Catawba County Schools educators who served and led together are now leaving together.

Catawba County Schools Superintendent Glenn Barger is leaving for the second time,and after a career as an educator and two terms on the school board, CCS Board Chair Joyce Spencer announced Tuesday she won't seek re-election.

Now, former educator and CCS Board member Steve Hilton has also decided he won't return to the elected office.

"I had the opportunity to serve the students and staff and community for eight years, coupled with 32 years I worked with Catawba County Schools beforehand," he told The O-N-E on Thursday. "I feel like it is time for me to turn it over to someone else."

I sure wish other elected officials would take the clue and self-limit on the number of terms they seek in an elected office.

I guess they just deem themselves too valuable to step down. I admire those who realize their time has passed!
