As of Saturday, Don Martin is officially retired from Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools — the organization he led for the last 19 years, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.
In August, Martin will join the staff of High Point University’s doctoral program in educational leadership. The new program will train participants to become future superintendents, allowing Martin, 61, to pass on all that he’s learned over the past three decades as a superintendent. He led the Rowan-Salisbury School System before taking over in Winston-Salem.
New superintendent Beverly Emory will take the reins Monday.
She will make $190,000 a year, compared with the $224,712 Martin made in his last year.
