Having spent 26 years coaching and another five as an Athletic Director, North Callaway's Michael Emmons posted a copy of his resignation letter on Facebook, which will take effect at the end of the current school year and was already sent to, among others, the school board and district superintendent:
Mr. Jobe, Mrs. Kemp, Mrs. Garner and North Callaway School Board,
I would like to thank the School Board, Administration and community for the opportunity to work for at the North Callaway School District. After 31 years of proudly being a Thunderbird, I plan on retiring at the end of this school year. I cannot picture a place I would rather have been and am honored to be a THUNDERBIRD for life! To my surprise, North Callaway was equally a positive influence on me. I thank you for that privilige as well as the opportunities I was given throughout my career.
