Trenton Superintendent Savel Says Farewell
Monday's Trenton Board of Education meeting was Superintendent John Savel's last.
John Savel, superintendent for Trenton Public Schools, read the Superintendent's Report for the last time Monday night at the board of education meeting.
Savel's official retire date isn't until June 30, but he will be on vacation for the next board meeting, which made Monday his final meeting.
Board members celebrated Savel's long career in education by giving him a plaque.
"During the past 38 years I have had two quotes hanging in my classroom and/or office, and I would like to leave the district with those thoughts," Savel said. "First, Will Rogers once said, 'Never let yesterday use up too much of tomorrow.' Second, and I don't know who said this one, 'One hundred years from now it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, nor what my clothes looked like. But the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child.'"
Savel worked in Trenton for seven years. He will be replaced by one of three potential candidates currently working as superintendent interns.
