Don Martin retiring

WINSTON-SALEM – Don Martin, who has served as superintendent of Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools for the past 18 years after leaving the Rowan-Salisbury School System, announced his retirement Thursday at a news conference in Winston-Salem. He will retire at the end of the school year, in June.
The Winston-Salem Journal reported that Martin, 61, said he wanted to get this school year in progress before announcing his retirement and give the school board several months to find a replacement.
Martin said he will consider a few post-retirement jobs, including working with some of the area’s local universities and colleges or advising state governmental agencies.
Martin was the 2011 Superintendent of the Year in North Carolina. He began his teaching career in Wilkes County in 1973. He also served as superintendent of two school systems in Kentucky.
