Donahoe’s return is unlikely

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Joint Press Release from Dr. Harper Donahoe and
Dr. Gregory Killough
I have been concerned about the health of my wife since her diagnosis with a serious, life-
threatening illness. This initially impacted my decision to resign as Principal of Caroline High
School at the end of the school year.
Dr. Killough, Division Superintendent, and I are in mutual agreement to move forward with new leadership at Caroline High School. Dr. Killough and I have the utmost professional respect for each other and we share the same goal – providing the best education possible for the
children of Caroline High School.
Since my appointment in July 2009, I have loved and respected the Caroline community and believe I have demonstrated that on a daily basis. I cannot say enough about the dedication of our teachers to meet the challenges of our community and provide such exemplary service for
our children. We, together with the School Board, have accomplished much in our short time together – a 4×4 block schedule, implementation of a 2.0 grade point average (GPA) for participation in athletics, much improve discipline, full accreditation, and the creation of the
Early College program. I did not accomplish these things; all of us in Caroline were vital elements of these initiatives. I am proud of what WE have done to improve our community.
I look forward to continuing to support our division and high school in their quest for educational excellence.
