Brookhaven School District superintendent to retire in June

Brookhaven School District Superintendent Ray Carlock announced his retirement Tuesday night following a meeting of the Board of Trustees.

“I submitted my letter of retirement effective June 30, 2020,” Carlock told The Daily Leader in a text message. “This completes four years at Brookhaven and I have enjoyed my time here. I am looking forward to retirement, travel and spending time with my grandkids and family.”

Carlock began his tenure at Brookhaven July 1, 2016 following an announcement of his selection in February of that year. He came to Brookhaven from the Franklin County School District, where he had served as superintendent for four years. Carlock applied for the job after speaking with then-Superintendent Ben Cox, who retired in June 2016.
