Speaking on behalf of the board, Chairperson John Brewer said, “We could not ask for more from Dr. Orr. His strategic work to improve the educational experience of our students, his managerial support and influential leadership with our staff have exceeded our expectations. We are confident the same level of accomplishment will be evident in all areas of his work as his time in our community and schools continues.”
Dr. Orr expressed his gratitude to the board for their support and continued, saying, “We have a great team with staff and leaders in schools and the district offices, making this work possible,” Orr said. “There is plenty of work ahead, but we are headed in a good direction. I look forward to sharing more of that work with the Powell County community in the coming weeks and months.”
