Six personnel matters were approved Monday night by Sulphur Springs Independent School District Board of Trustees, including four notices of retirement, one new hire and naming of a staff member to fill the opening at Early Childhood Learning Center when principal Sherry Finney retires at the end of the school year.

Lamar Primary School academic specialist Amanda Fenton was selected to become the principal at ECLC. She will start following Finney’s retirement at the conclusion of the school year.

Two additional ECLC staff members tendered early notification of retirement. ECLC pre-kindergarten teacher Anita Godbolt and office clerk Jean Davis plan to retire at year’s end.

Also submitting early retirement notifications were Sulphur Springs Elementary third grade teacher Vicki Newsom and Phyllis Flemens, a maintenance secretary at the administration campus. Their retirements will be at the end of the year as well.

That brings the list of SSISD staff notifying trustees this semester of their plans to retire by the end of the year to six. Finney and Glenda Wright, academic specialist at Sulphur Springs High School, turned in their notices of retirement last month; they were accepted during the special Jan. 30 board meeting. Finney’s retirement will be effective June 14 and Wright’s June 15.

Approved to become a new special education aide at Sulphur Springs Middle School was Candice Lamb.

Trustees also during the meeting were slated to consider completing the superintendent’s regular evaluation and extending his contract. At the conclusion of their executive session Monday night, in addition to approving the above personnel items, board members voted to extend Superintendent Michael Lamb’s three-year contract by one additional year.
