SUGARCREEK (Tusco TV) - The Garaway Board of Education has an opening to fill with their board president stepping down less than a year into his second term.
Rob Coburn turned in his letter of resignation on May 6th, saying that after much prayer and consideration, he and his family had decided purchased a home in another school district. He wrote that he greatly enjoyed his time of service, and said it had been a pleasure to work with current and former board members and administration.
Superintendent James Millet says they’re grateful for Coburn’s service to the Garaway school community and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
"I would just like to say that I greatly appreciate everything that Rob Coburn has done for this district. I know he put a lot of heart and passion into what we’re doing here," Millet says. "He will be missed."
The board has until June 5th to appoint someone to replace Coburn through the end of the year. The seat will be up for election in November, and the winner will serve the remaining three years of Coburn’s unexpired term.
