Kirksville school board recognizes outgoing superintendent

School may be out for the summer, but the Kirksville School Board is still hard at work, and they had a very full agenda at Wednesday nightâ??s meeting.

Items up for discussion included a review of the 2014 revised budget, renewal of K12itc Helpdesk services, and presentation of the year-end Transportation Report and Student Achievement Report.

The board also took some time during Wednesdayâ??s meeting to recognize outgoing Superintendent Pat Williams.

â??I just feel blessed to have been able to spend 31 of my 33 years here, to satisfy my passion I have for kids in this community, but also enabled me to work with so many fine people, many of whom are in this room,â?? said Williams.

Williams has been part of the school district for 31 years, serving as superintendent for the last eight years.

Dr. Damon Kizzire will take over as Kirksville's new Superintendent of Schools beginning July 1.
