Thomason's farewell meeting
Outgoing Petersburg School District Superintendent Rob Thomason attended his last school board meeting Tuesday evening. He had these final words for the board and the public:
"It's been a great five years in Petersburg," Thomason said. "It's been the highlight of my career. It truly has. As my wife and I have reminisced, we always say we wished we would have found this opportunity ten years sooner. It's been good, and I think the district is in good hands with the principals and the director of finance and the activities director. You've got a great leadership team and an experienced superintendent coming in. I anticipate nothing but good."
