After nearly two decades as a leader in the Stockbridge Community School District, Jo Mayer will retire at the end of March.
The official announcement came during the Stockbridge Board of Education meeting on March 13, where board members, regretfully, approved Mayer’s request of retirement.
“Jo is a leader who is always there to support and assist students, parents and community members with any community and school needs,” said Superintendent, Karl Heidrich during the board meeting. “Jo is a true pillar of the community and has shown tremendous dedication over the years,” he added.
Mayer says she is especially proud of her work as Community Education Director and as chairperson of the Stockbridge Area Wellness Coalition where work was done to implement a greenhouse and pavilion on the school grounds as well as a track behind the school. She has also been instrumental in the continued work of getting dugouts constructed at the baseball field.
“I have worked with some great people who have dedicated a lot of time and money to improve things,” said Mayer.
Heidrich said an interim will most likely fill the position as Community Education Director for the remainder of the year and the board will be looking into a permanent replacement during the next month.
