With 43 years experience in the education field, Bryan County School Superintendent John Oliver said Thursday he will retire at the end of the 2011-2012 school year.
“I’ve done my thing,” Oliver said Thursday after the Board of Education’s regular meeting at Richmond Hill High School. “I’ve spent a major portion of my career in Bryan County, and professionally it has been a great experience.”
Oliver has been in the Bryan County School System for 26 years and said he has enjoyed his time here.
“I’ve been in this position since February of ‘09 and the board and staff have been very supportive, and I appreciate all the work they’ve done,” he said.
The board unanimously approved to enter a contract with the Georgia School Boards Association to begin the search for a new superintendent.
“We will have a lot of good candidates for the position,” Oliver said.
The board will also be in search of a person to finish out the term of previous District 3 board member Charlie Johnson. Johnson announced his resignation, which was effective earlier this month, at the October board meeting.
