(MONTGOMERY) - The Barr-Reeve school board accepted "with thanks and much regret" the retirement notice of longtime elementary Principal Linda Parsons at its monthly meeting Tuesday night. Her retirement will take effect after the 2012-2013 school year.
Superintendent Travis Madison and all board members thanked her repeatedly for her many years of service to the corporation, which will total 42 by her retirement.
"I will have been in the school 54 years," Parsons says as she, herself, was a graduate of Barr-Reeve High School. She noted that back in those days BR did not have kindergarten.
