CHIPLEY — Superintendent Sandra Cook and school board attorney Thomas Gerald Holley both bid farewell to the Washington County School District at the School Board meeting on Monday.

Holley is retiring from serving as the district’s attorney after 42 years. “I’m retiring from this, but I still plan to practice a little law on the side,” he said, joking with the board members.

Later in the meeting, the board approved advertising a request for proposal for a school board attorney, which would begin the process of seeking a replacement for Holley.

Cook was defeated in the Primary Election by Republican candidate Joe Taylor, who was elected Superintendent during the Nov. 6 General Election, where he defeated Democratic opponent Pat Aukema Dickson for the position.

“I want to thank everyone who works in the school district for what they do every day,” Cook said. “Everybody in the district puts forth effort to do their best for our children, and you never know when what you do will make a difference in the life of a child.”

Cook said she is looking forward to moving on “to bigger and better things,” but she said she appreciated getting to serve as superintendent for four years.

“Thank you for everything, it’s been a great opportunity.”
