RE: Resignation from the Clarke County School District Board of Education

Dear Governor Kemp, Dr. Gantt, and Dr. Means:

I am writing to inform you of my resignation from my position on the board of education for Clarke County School District due to personal reasons. I will relinquish my responsibilities and privileges as a board member effective immediately.

I greatly appreciated the opportunity to serve alongside my fellow board members in a cause we all believe in --the education of every child.
