Two long time Hartselle educators to retire

Sept. 30 will mark the end of two long-term Hartselle City Schools educators’ careers. HCS Director of School Operations, Jerry Reeves will retire after 37 years in education. Reeves began his tenure with HCS as a high school biology teacher, he went on to serve as girls basketball coach, assistant principal and then principal of HHS before transferring to the central office in his current position.

Bob Young who currently serves as assistant principal and athletic director at Hartselle High has served all 28 years of his education career at Hartselle. He began as a history teacher at HHS and was also served as assistant baseball coach for a number of years at Hartselle.

“These two men have given a lot of good service for a lot of good years and worked together for many of those years,” said Hartselle City Schools Superintendent, Dr. Vic Wilson after the local board approved the retirement requests. The retirements were approved at a special called board meeting on Wed., Aug 31. The two men will also receive the special incentive that was extended on a 3-2-board vote earlier in July. Eligible employees would be paid a 1% incentive of their current pay for each year of service they had with Hartselle City Schools. The incentive was offered earlier in the year to help with budget concerns within the system, and was extended with eligible employees having to notify the state retirement system of plans to retire by Sept. 1 for a Sept. 30 retirement date.
