School superintendent to retire in June
Petersburg School District Superintendent Dr. Rob Thomason announced his retirement last week.
Thomason began working for the PSD in 2009. Jean Ellis, school board president, said he was instrumental in changing the district for the better.
"I've been trying to talk him out of leaving," Ellis joked."When he became the superintendent he was the sixth one in eight years. People were becoming dispirited with superintendent turnover."
Ellis credited his people skills and positive attitude as main factors for the district wide morale boost that's occurred over the past five years.
