Bully Pulpit

Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Two Stokes administrators plan to resign

Winston-Salem Journal

Two top administrators in the Stokes County school system have announced plans to leave.

Superintendent Larry Cartner, who has held the job since 2003, gave the school board a letter of intent to resign during the board’s regular meeting Monday night, Sonya Cox, the chairwoman of the board, said yesterday. Cartner will become superintendent of Person County Schools, she said.

“He did a great job here. Our loss is Person County’s gain,” Cox said.

The board plans to begin looking for a new superintendent immediately, she said.

“Our plan is to make some decisions about a type of interim situation,” Cox said.

Cartner could not be reached for comment.

The school system will also be looking for an assistant superintendent. Debbie Merritt gave the board a letter stating that she will retire in June.
