QUITMAN, Miss. (AP) - Quitman Municipal School District Superintendent Suzanne Hawley will retire when the school year ends this month.

Hawley served nine years as superintendent for the Quitman city schools. She came to Quitman after serving seven years as superintendent for the Benoit School District in Bolivar County. She also taught 12 years Oklahoma schools.

Hawley told The Meridian Star (https://bit.ly/1zVuZCC) she wants to spend more time with her family.

“It’s that time in my life where I have children and grandchildren in three different states and none of them are in Mississippi,” Hawley said. “One lives in Tulsa, another in Colorado and one in Florida. I’ve told them I plan on spending spring at one place, summer in another and football season at the third.”

Quitman High School Principal Michael McDonald said Hawley brought a good understanding of the importance of academics and athletics to the district.

“She brought an emphasis on academics by stressing our accomplishments in the honors program and with our AP programs,” McDonald said. “We upgraded our ACT scores and she supported all of our athletic programs.”
