After 44-years in the Lamar County School System, Assistant Superintendent Carolyn Adams is retiring.

A retirement reception was held for her Monday afternoon at Oak Grove High School.

Adams started her career as an English teacher at Oak Grove High School. Over the years she served as a guidance counselor, principal, and became assistant superintendent in 2001.

Adams says what she will miss the most is all the great people she has worked with. She says over the years she has had many great moments.

"When Oak Grove Schools was named a blue ribbon school twice, was really a defining moment," said Adams. In the district each year those test scores roll in. The fact they are steadily improving each year makes it all worthwhile."

Interviews for a new assistant superintendent are ongoing and one could be named as early as next week.
