He needs to just take over. Then systematically clean house. Then RC needs to set qualifications and requirements for School Board and the Sup. needs to be an appointed position.

Weathersby is done. Has said he will not run again. This is a HUGE loss for NWR. Best Administrator the school has had. He learned from the best (Massey) and took it many steps forward. I wish Richard the best in his endeavors! If Richard does decide to run for Superintendent then I will do everything I can to help him. Him leading our district will do wonders for our children, our schools and our property values!

Our schools are fortunate to have some of the most dedicated, wonderful and caring principals and Mr. Morrison is at the top of the list. I hate to see him leave the high school but know that the current assistants will carry on. They are all very professional, dedicated and have our children's interest foremost in their minds. He will have huge responsibilities if he takes on Mr. Carr's job. I know he can add his guidance and professionalism to the current administration and help improve and keep this district the best in the state. I support him and our district administrators and will pray for them.
