OS High principal retiring

Oliver Springs High School will have a new principal next school year.

Principal Jeff Woods is retiring.

“We kept trying to talk him into staying,” Roane County Director of Schools Gary Aytes said. “He’s a super individual. We’re certainly going to miss him.”

Aytes said Woods has been at Oliver Springs High School for 30 years. He took over the principal’s job there in 2004.

“Mr. Woods is a great guy,” Board of Education Member Sam Cox said. “I hate to see him retire.”
