After 35 years in the Guthrie Public School system, a Guthrie principal will be retiring at the end of the school year.
Fogarty Elementary Principal Kathy McGee informed Superintendent Terry Simpson and the school board of her decision to retire on March 1st in a written letter. The board accepted her retirement in the March 12th board meeting.
“It’s hard for me to believe I have worked thirty-five years for Guthrie Public Schools,” McGee said.
“I have worked under six superintendents since I was hired in 1977 and have seen and been involved in countless changes over the years. It has been exciting to be an active part in many of these changes which have had a positive impact on the education of our children,” the longtime educator said.
McGee knows leaving the school building will be difficult, but looks forward to more time with her family.
“I am looking forward to retirement, and spending more time with my family. However, I will carry in my heart many great memories of the wonderful people I have met and worked with, and, I will cherish the many priceless things children have said or done over the years,” McGee said.
