Dr. Prater Powell To Leave Manchester City Schools In One Year

Dr. Prater Powell has decided to retire from his position as director of Manchester City Schools effective June of 2013.
Powell was named the director in 2003 and will complete his 10th year with Manchester and 45 years in education at the end of June 2013. Dr. Powell said this was not an easy decision and wanted to give the board advance notice of his choice. He says he will continue over the next year to work for the students and staff in maintaining the high quality educational programs in the Manchester City Schools. Powell added that serving the students, staff and the Manchester City School community has been an honor and privilege.
As one of Dr.Powell’s colleagues said, “Thanks for the ride; it has been a great experience.”
