Rowan County Supt. Marvin Moore announced his retirement during Thursday’s special called Board of Education meeting.
Moore, who has served as superintendent for 13 years, says the decision was a difficult one for him to make.
“You can look at the top of my head to the bottom of my feet, and I will always bleed green,” Moore said immediately before announcing his decision to retire.
Moore began his teaching career in 1969, and has since served as a teacher, principal, and superintendent in the Rowan County district.
He was principal at both Rowan County Senior High School and Rowan County Middle School.
Moore also expressed his plan to remain active as superintendent, up until his final day in the position.
“I will be superintendent until the minute I walk out the door,” he said.
Moore’s retirement will be effective June 30.
