Bladen School Superintendent Resigns

To Confused. If you think you are confused, what about Mr. Killingsworth. The meeting was on 10/11/2010. It appears he wrote the letter out during the meeting on that date. But notice, he dated the letter 10/12/2010.

Look at the writing used in the letter that has been posted; it appears that whoever wrote it must have been under considerable duress. Hope our teachers are preparing our students to do a much better job of writing.

Mr. Killingsworth from every indication has done a good job as superintendent; one would think, however that the board of education in the process of selecting a new superintendent would look for a candidate that has at least a few years left before he can retire. How many does this make we have went through since Mr. Hair retired. The education community of Bladen County needs a steadying influence in the leadership postition. We have got to get back to the days where superintendents, principals, and teachers have some staying power; it has gotten to the point that children have no stability at home in a lot of cases and there certainly doesn't appear to be any when they get to the school house.

I can just hear it being said, why don't we just change the principals from one shool to another? WHY? Please don't ever move Mr. Finn from West Bladen until he retires and we hope that is a long time off. But, again; that will be his decision as to when he retires. And remember, it was Mr. Killingsworth who brought him to us. One will probably never know exactly what transpired Monday night; but there is one thing for sure, Mr. Killingsworth sure picked a winner when he brought Mr. Finn to the West Bladen family. Enjoy your retirement Mr. Killingsworth and thank you for the 30 or so years of service in the public schools. Sorry it had to end at 10:15 pm in a closed session of the BOE.
