Chief Public Information Officer Nat Harrington on Thursday sent an email to district employees and members of the media announcing his resignation:
Dear coworkers and friends,
In the spirit of transparency and honoring my relationships with you, I need to let you know that I informed the Superintendent last Friday of my resignation from the district effective June 6, the last day of school for our students.
As I said in the letter, it has been a privilege to serve and help so many during my time in the district.
I am pursuing exciting new opportunities.
Obviously my sixteen years as the district spokesman and Chief of Public Affairs has been an extraordinary experience, one that has enriched my life and career. Each of you has given me and each other your unqualified support during the years, as we worked hard as a team to improve the lives of our students, families, fellow employees and community. For that I will always be grateful. Thank you.
Many blessings and the best of luck to each of you. As always, if there is ever anything I can do to help you in any way, please let me know.
