Charles “Chad” Daugherty resigned as superintendent of the Huntington County Community School Corporation during the school board meeting on Monday,June 27.
“After serving the past 25 years at HCCSC in various roles and the last three years as superintendent, I plan to resign my position of Superintendent of Huntington County Community Schools effective July 29,” he told the board. “I plan on taking vacation after July first. I have been very fortunate to be able to serve in many different positions in the same district for the past 25 years without moving my family.
“These opportunities would not have been possible if not for many people that believed in me and served as mentors to me growing up. I have been very blessed and fortunate to have raised five children who have all attended HCCS where they have received an amazing education from a lot of amazing educators and coaches along the way.
“The friendships and relationships that we have built with students, parents, teachers, sports staff, and community members has been the biggest highlight of my career that will last a lifetime.
“It does not get much better than to see and hear from a student you had in class as a teacher or administrator to come back and tell you that you impacted their life in a positive manner.
“It does not matter where you serve in the district you have a chance to add value to the lives of young people and that’s why we do what we do. I’m confident the same attitude will continue under new leadership here.
“I just want to thank the board of trustees for the opportunity to serve HCCS for the past 25 years.
“It’s been an honor and we’ve been through a lot together and done a lot.”
