Today I had the opportunity to attend a luncheon recognizing the retirements of School Board Chairman Mike Yates and my brother, Superintendent Joe Cox. A special thank you to Dr. Krishan Agrawal for hosting today's event.
Mike Yates will retire at the end of the year following eight years on the Colonial Heights School Board, including six as chairman. Prior to running for office, Mike worked for 34 years as a school guidance counselor. He has played a key role in facilities and tech upgrades that have taken place during his time on the board.
Joe Cox will retire at the end of the 2018-2019 school year following 18 years of service as Superintendent. Joe is currently the longest serving Superintendent in the state and the longest serving in Colonial Heights history. During his tenure, all Colonial Heights Public Schools have seen expansions/renovations and have consistently been accredited.
