HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Hattiesburg Superintendent Annie Wimbish will vacate the office she has occupied for five years on Tuesday.
Wimbish said, "My heart is breaking. I am struggling, truly struggling to not break down. I can't even talk about good-byes."
Wimbish has been with the district for the last five years, and in April, to the surprise of many, she announced she would be resigning.
She said the last five years have indeed been marvelous. Wimbish said she has built many relationships and made it clear the tough economic times the district is facing had nothing to do with her departure. She added, her good days would always outweigh her bad and knows the district will continue to flourish in years to come.
Wimbish said she will remain in the area for the next three months to a year. Her last day is Tuesday, June 30.
