ISSUE: Gary French retires
OUR VIEW: Superintendent tenure was an active time
Last month, Gary French ended a 35-year career as an educator. Leading Elizabethtown Independent Schools as superintendent for the last four years, French worked multiple jobs in the district over the decades.
Teaching started as a means to coach basketball. But French quickly loved teaching and his professional life bloomed to leave its mark on students ,and then teachers, and then administrators and the entire district community.
