Marjorie Earick has resigned from her District 5/6 seat on the Roane County Board of Education.
She said her husband’s health was behind the decision.
“Because of his health, I just don’t have the time to put into it,” she said.
“It broke my heart, but I have to take care of him.”
Earick’s colleagues said she’ll be missed.
“She was in this for all the right reasons,” Director of Schools Gary Aytes said.
