For more than 30 years Tim Murley has called Warren County Public Schools home.

Now after three years as superintendent, Murley has announced his retirement. His success in that role hasn't come without hardships.

"I guess what I have seen is the changes going on with technology have been hard to do with the budget process. It has been a bad budget time and it really has and it still is," says Superintendent Murley.

Despite unstable economic times Warren County Public Schools were able to expand. Growing more than 2,000 students since Murley took office.

"You know we opened South Warren Middle and High school when I was superintendent. Opened Jody Richards Elementary, finished building Richardsville Elementary and Bristow Elementary. Those are difficult. You have to stay on top of those and those are major accomplishments and it's good to see those run well," says Murley.

As the calendar approaches his final day, February 28, Murley is looking ahead to much deserved family time.

"I've been on call since being a principal and I had many jobs through the system and I don't know what that's going to be like not being on call. My sons and my wife are going, I am going to be on call to them hopefully, and my mom," says Murley.

Although he may be leaving the school district, Murley says Warren County will still be the place he calls home.

The Warren County Board of Education says they will call a special meeting by the end of the month to name an interim Superintendent.
